In early April 2017, over 130 delegates met in Munich, Germany, to discuss the latest research in the development and reprogramming of cells of the nervous system. The conference, which was organised by Abcam and entitled ‘Programming and Reprogramming the Brain’, was a great success, and provided an excellent snapshot of the current state of the field, and what the challenges are for the future. This Meeting Review provides a summary of the talks presented and the major themes that emerged from the conference.
