This half-day, which is completely free to attend, will feature tours of our laboratories. Researchers will demonstrate the techniques we use and the sorts of problems we are trying to solve. Details of the demonstrations to follow.

These tours will be followed by a talk by Professor David Sharp about general aspects of research in brain injury along with a panel discussion on getting back to work following brain injury with guest panelists Dr Daniel Friedland and a respresentative from Attend starting at 3:45pm.

There will also be an opportunity to give us your thoughts and tell us about any experiences you’ve had about taking part in brain injury research. You can also sign up to take part in current and future research studies.
