Throughout the month of March, we’re taking our researchers on the road to celebrate the research that you have helped fund. Brain Awareness Month is a chance for the Neurological Foundation to connect with its supporters throughout New Zealand and share with them the new and exciting breakthroughs that have been happening in the lab!
We hope you’ll celebrate Brain Awareness Month with us this year to commemorate the past 50 years of research, and to see where the next 50 will take us.
ABOUT THE SPEAKER AND TOPIC
Dr Karl Iremonger is originally from a small town in Southland called Otautau but now resides in Dunedin where he works at the University of Otago researching how brain circuits in the hypothalamus control the body’s response to stress. His research has been recognized with several awards including the Prime Minister’s MacDiarmid Emerging Scientist Prize, the University of Otago Early Career Award for Distinction in Research and the Rowheath Trust Award and Carl Smith Medal.
This event will focus on Dr Iremonger’s award-winning work on how the brain controls the release of stress hormones – our flight or fight response.
The event will be held in the Auditorium for the Dunedin Public Art Gallery.
The doors for registration and seating will open at 6.00 pm. There will be a mix and mingle period after the event with the speaker where refreshments and food will be served.
Parking is not available at the venue but there is street parking nearby.
