The Cambridge Spring School 2020: Lessons from Neural Injury 1st 3rd April 2020

The Cambridge Spring School 2020: Lessons from Neural Injury 1st – 3rd April 2020

Welcome back to the Cambridge Spring School, organised by the Department of Clinical Neurosciences at the University of Cambridge! This year’s event ‘Lessons from Neural Injury’, will explore what can be learned about disease mechanisms from clinical or experimental injury. We will also discuss how injury informs us about plasticity, axon regeneration and neuronal survival mechanisms in the central or peripheral nervous system with sessions on brain, spinal cord, eye and peripheral nerve injury.

This year’s Spring School will include:

– 19 invited speakers’ talks
– 4 short talks (selected from abstracts, with a prize for best talk)
– 2 Poster sessions (selected from abstracts, with a prize for best poster presentation)
– Plenary session with keynote speaker (Prof. Zhigang He from Boston Children’s Hospital at Harvard University)
– Public session on spinal cord and brain injury after sports accidents and their risk of developing dementia
– Meet and greet social night (1st April)

Please submit all abstracts (word limit = 150 words) for consideration for a short talk or poster presentation before 13th March 2020 to the organisers listed below.
