In Austria, Switzerland, Argentina and Sweden, Homaira Nawabi presents the advances made in her research into neural regeneration all over the world.

In April 2024, Homaira Nawabi presented the work of her "Central Nervous System: from development to regeneration" team at two conferences to which she had been invited: in Austria by the Wings for Life Foundation and in China for the International Neural Regeneration Symposium

The Wings for Life Foundation (WLF), a not-for-profit foundation set up by the Red Bull brand, supports research about spinal cord injuries and has been funding research projects and clinical studies around the world since 2004. 

In 2022, Homaira Nawabi's research project, selected by the Foundation, received funding of €200,000. The neuroscientist was invited to Salzburg in Austria from 21 to 23 April to present the progress of her work about axonal regeneration in the spinal cord.

The annual Wings for Life meeting brought together around a hundred participants of 15 different nationalities. "This congress is an opportunity to meet other researchers from all over the world who are working on the same issues as us, and to exchange ideas on how to improve our current work", says the scientist. "We also took part in a workshop on translational research, to get treatments to patients as quickly as possible."

A few days earlier, Homaira Nawabi had presented her work on axonal guidance at the International Neural Regeneration Symposium, held in Guangzhou, China, from 12 to 14 April 2024. She explained the mechanisms involved in controlling the trajectory of axons during regeneration. 



She will be back at congress this autumn, invited to take part in the 26th biennial meeting of the International Society of Eye Research (ISER), which will be held in Buenos Aires, and also in Sweden at the invitation of the Karolinska Institutet.
