Cambridge Neuroscience External Review Poster Presentation & Reception

University Centre, Granta Place


Cambridge Neuroscience Poster Session and Reception

University Centre, Wednesday June 22nd 2016, 17:00-19:00

Open to members of Cambridge Neuroscience only


You may be aware that General Board has initiated a programme of Strategic Research Reviews which are designed to offer an external perspective on the Cambridge research environment by bringing in an external panel of experts in the field to appraise activity in areas identified by the Schools as priorities for review.

Neuroscience research in Cambridge will be reviewed between 22-24th June (chaired by Professor Barry Everitt).

The Review is intended to be "forward looking" in that it will both enable early investments to be made where needed in preparation for the next REF and ensure that there is a critical assessment of the strengths and weaknesses of the research environment in Cambridge to ensure its long-term health and to maximise any identified opportunities and to address any identified challenges and barriers that the University faces.

As part of this process, the external reviewers would like to meet early career investigators across the breath of Cambridge Neuroscience to discuss neuroscience research undertaken at Cambridge. 

We will hold a poster session on Wednesday June 22nd from 17:00-19:00 at the University Centre.

  • Principal investigators, PhD students and early career investigators are invited to attend this session to meet with the external review panel.
  • PhD students and early career investigators are invited to submit an abstract to apply for the opportunity to present their research.
  • 50 posters from across all themes of Neuroscience at Cambridge will be selected for presentation and you will have an excellent opportunity to discuss your research with the esteemed members of the external review panel.
