Neurological immune-mediated diseases have become increasingly important in the public health scenario. This growth brings about the need for more professionals qualified to provide better quality healthcare to patients. The large-scale scientific production available supports updating and distribution of knowledge. However, in the current scenario with endless information and professionals who expect innovation, most of which are beginners in the field of neurosciences, this is not enough. There is the need for analysis, synthesis, exchange of experience, as well as dialogue. Although innovations and current technologies are presented amongst us, the best opportunity to exercise this dialogue is through formal and informal meetings with professionals, also greatly enriching bonds of friendship.
The city of São Paulo would like to thank and feels honored to host the BCTRIMS 18th Annual Meeting accruing students and professionals from all the regions in Brazil. Prepare your scientific work, bring your experience, share your knowledge. The best way of growing is doing it together. We express our best wishes and efforts to provide all our colleagues and friends with a wonderful stay and a meaningful and productive meeting.
