We have an exciting line up of local and international speakers, who will discuss their research on Addiction, Alzheimer's and Dementia, Depression, Huntington's Disease, Mood Disorders, Multiple Sclerosis, Obesity, Pain, Parkinson's Disease, Schizophrenia, Spinal Cord Injury and Stroke.

This event provides an opportunity for Cambridge Neuroscientists to present their work to colleagues as well as be inspired by the latest research from leaders in the field.
