President's Post 2022
 May 2022
Prof. Bruno Brochet

In 2012, the IMSCOGS made its first meeting in Bordeaux “the Port of the Moon”. Many of you had, on that occasion, discovered the renovated capital of Aquitaine, its sumptuous facade on the Garonne River and its unique 18th century historic heart, which had just been classified by UNESCO.

Ten years later, the IMSCOGS returns to Bordeaux, now the capital of New Aquitaine. The attractiveness of Bordeaux has continued to grow and the symbol of this is the new Cité du Vin which welcomed more than 400,000 visitors in one year. Bordeaux, now only 2 hours from Paris by TGV, ranked in 2017 as destination of the year (Los Angeles Time), first of the world's must-see cities (Lonely Planet) and gastronomic capital of France (Atabula), deserves your visit!

Bordeaux is a neurological school now gathered on a single site, a stone's throw from the Faculty of Medicine and the Neurocampus, where more than 600 researchers, engineers, post-doctoral fellows and doctoral students are divided into several institutes in the Broca Nouvelle-Aquitaine Center and the Neurocentre Magendie. This proximity of neurology, including the dynamic MS center,  to neuroscience teams allows for the development of translational research combining clinical and fundamental research, in particular within the laboratories of excellence in neurodegenerative diseases research, in the various fields of expertise of the Bordeaux teams. MS and Cognition in MS is one of them.

On behalf of the loacal organizing committee and the IMSCOGS executive board and steering committee, I am pleased to welcome you to Bordeaux for the 2022 IMSCOGS Bordeaux letting and I wish you an excellent congress.
