George N. Chaldakov


In 1951, Rita Levi-Montalcini discovered nerve growth-stimulating factor, later named nerve growth factor (NGF), which today is recognized as the paradigm of a whole family of neurotrophic proteins, the neurotrophins. Half a century later, on 15-19 May, 2002, in Modena, Italy, The 7th International Conference on NGF and Related Molecules celebrated this tour de force of NGF's discovery, by presenting the state-of-the-art in neurotrophic factor research, including 60 lectures and 75 posters from world experts in neurotrophobiology.
