The Unit held its twelfth Science Day on Friday 9th July 2021. Unpublished work and future research projects were the focus of discussion, and Unit members and visitors enthusiastically took the chance to offer the constructive criticism needed to support collaboration and foster cutting-edge research.

There were 8 research talks, all of which were given by the Unit’s early-career scientists. Unit Research Support Manager Ben Micklem also gave an insightful presentation on best practice in data sharing. Attendees were also treated to a Special Lecture by Professor Rob Brownstone of University College London, in which he gave an entertaining and shrewd account of the neuronal mechanisms of DYT1 dystonia.

Unit Interim Director Professor Peter Magill commented: “A fantastic virtual showcase of interdisciplinary research, and a great opportunity to review our collective progress in fulfilling the Units’ Mission. It was a pleasure and a privilege to see the next generation of our talented researchers in action and to learn from them.”
