Following our massively successful “Making it Brain” web event last year, the UK Dementia Research Institute (UK DRI) is delighted to host our second research and careers mini-conference for late-stage (16+) secondary school students!
This is a brilliant opportunity to learn more about the career of an academic scientist or clinician and their fascinating research into the workings of the brain. We’ll be showcasing diverse topics from across our Institute – from cells to circuits, systems to patients! You’ll have the chance to hear from leading researchers about their motivations and the journeys that led them into the field of neuroscience and neurodegenerative disease, followed by a live Q&A.
We’ll also be taking you behind the scenes of a working laboratory in a series of videos to experience the range of techniques we use to investigate the brain and its unique characteristics.
