The developing brain in health and disease: a scientific meeting

09.00, Tuesday 19 March 2019

17.30, Wednesday 20 March 2019

Lady Margaret Hall, University of Oxford, OX2 6QA

Livestream available:

This two day scientific meeting in Oxford will explore key areas of neurodevelopmental research in a unique forum that emphasises discussion and collaboration between disciplines, career stages and sectors.

The meeting will bring together an interdisciplinary mix of researchers, from world leading scientists to early career researchers, as well as other key players in the field, such as funders and industry. One of the key aims will be to highlight the latest advances in neurodevelopmental research and identify key research questions that could bring a real impact to the field.

Chairs: Professor Sir Mike Owen FMedSci and Professor Kate Storey FRSE FMedSci

We welcome researchers from all backgrounds interested in brain development. We strongly encourage early career researchers, in their PhD or above, as it will be a great opportunity to:

  • Listen to some of the most inspiring national and international scientists in the field on a wide range of interdisciplinary topics
  • Showcase your work during the poster sessions and ‘flash talks’
  • Meet with your peers and more established academics
  • Increase your national and international networks

The meeting will consist of a series of high level thematic talks with an interdisciplinary approach to neurodevelopmental research that bridges clinical and non-clinical fields. There will be plenty of space for structured and free-flowing discussions, during the poster, plenary, breakout sessions and social events.
