Cambridge Neurological Society - 2nd Cambridge Clinical Neurosciences Symposium - 2nd March 2013

The Cambridge Neurological Society aims to promote Neurology and Neurosurgery as clinical specialities and as areas of research within the University of Cambridge, we are therefore very proud present our Second Annual Cambridge Clinical Neurosciences Symposium on Saturday 2nd March 2013.

For one fantastic day, we will be bringing together neurosurgeons and neuroscientists, who will be speaking on a brilliant range of topics, all in their areas of expertise. We expect 100 attendees, and many nationally renowned speakers including Professor John Pickard, who is head of the Neurosurgery unit and Wolfson Brain Imaging centre at Addenbrooke’s hospital.

We are also delighted to have another leading Neurosurgeon, Professor Henry Marsh, whom you may have seen on the BBC documentary Your Life In Their Hands. On top of a stimulating line up of talks, there will also be workshops on neurological examinations, endoscopic neurosurgery and genuine neurosurgical drills to try your hand at! Furthermore, there will be a scrumptious lunch provided by the University Centre on the day as well as hot beverages and snacks served during the breaks.

We also wish to invite all attendees to participate in our poster competition. This is an ideal opportunity to present work on neuroscience, neurosurgery or psychiatry.
