Making it Brain: A Neuroscience Research and Career Mini-Conference for Students

Venue: Online via Zoom


Event Notes:

The UK Dementia Research Institute (UK DRI) will host their third 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. They will be showcasing diverse topics from across the 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.

They will also be taking you behind the scenes of a working laboratory in a series of videos to experience the range of techniques they use to investigate the brain and its unique characteristics.

The mini-conference will be held virtually and is completely FREE for attendees – register today! Although aimed at those in the later stages of secondary school (16-18), students of any age can attend including undergraduates.
