Come and hear four short talks and browse stands about brain research at the University of Oxford and Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust.
The evening will be of interest to the general public, and in particular to patients and those who care for them. There will be plenty of opportunities to ask questions and talk to researchers informally.

- Epilepsy (Arjune Sen)
- Cerebrovascular Disease & Dementia (Sarah Pendlebury)
- Parkinson's Disease (Michele Hu)
This event involves speakers from the University's Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences, which is part of Oxford Neuroscience. It is part of Brain Awareness Week and the Oxford Biomedical Research Centre Open Weeks.
The NIHR Biomedical Research Centre, Oxford (OxBRC) is based at the Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust and run in partnership with the University of Oxford. It was one of five centres funded by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) in 2007 through a competitively awarded grant of £57m over five years. In April 2012, as a recognition for its outstanding contribution to healthcare research it was awarded a further 5 years funding at an increase of 50% to support translational research.
