The Unit held its fourteenth Science Day on Friday 24th June 2022. Unpublished work and future research projects were at the centre of discussion, and Unit members and visitors eagerly took the opportunity to provide the informal constructive feedback that is essential for fostering collaborative working and team science.

There were 9 short research talks and 19 poster presentations, most of which were given by the Unit’s early-career scientists. Attendees were also treated to a Keynote Lecture from Dr Marc Aurel Busche of the UK Dementia Research Institute, in which he gave a discerning account of the impact of amyloid protein on neuronal circuit function.

Unit Interim Director Professor Peter Magill commented: “It was a great pleasure to hold our first in-person Science Day since late 2019. Unit members were energised by the chance to meet and exchange ideas under the same roof, and it was exciting to see how the work of the Unit’s students and postdoctoral staff is revealing important new insights into brain function and dysfunction.”
