There has never been a more exciting time in brain research than now. A global effort by clinicians and scientists has brought about an exponential increase in our knowledge of the human brain, and what occurs in the brain in disease and injury. These efforts, combined with innovative new technologies, and a confluence of discoveries, are having a significant impact on the development of treatments for brain disorders.  

In this exciting FREE public panel discussion event, we bring together five international brain research pioneers from all corners of the world to shed light on their work that is unravelling the mysteries of the human brain. Together, their efforts to move this frontier field forward are shaping a path to a much brighter future for neurological patients and their families.
