Brain Health Day (Manchester) - A public science event all about clinical brain research!

A free public event showcasing clinical neuroscience research, run by the University of Manchester. This is not a Stroke Association event, but does feature some of our funded researchers.

When : Saturday 18 March 2023, 11am-4pm
Where : Manchester Central Library (see map)
Cost: Entry to the venue and all talks are free of charge

Taking place on Saturday 18th March at Manchester Central Library, 11am-4pm, the event will be a showcase of talks and scientific discovery stalls focussing on clinical neuroscience (brain and nervous system) research happening at the Geoffrey Jefferson Brain Research Centre (GJBRC).

You’ll be able to attend a series of talks from leading academics, explore science activity stands, play games, and much more! Ask questions, meet the researchers who work behind the scenes – and even sign up to participate in research yourself. Lemn Sissay OBE will also be performing his poem “Find Me” portraying the journey of someone who has had a stroke. Ranging from brain tumours to vascular dementia, stroke and brain imaging, there’ll be something for everyone!

This event is suitable for the science-curious of any age and with any level of knowledge, and is not to be missed! Come for the whole day, or pop in and out for specific talks and to visit the stands. You’ll need to register for a free ticket to attend a talk, as space for talks is limited (please see the webpages for information about how to register Stroke-IMPaCT | Brain Health Day - Stroke-IMPaCT). Talks will be of particular interest to those aged 14 and above, but anyone is welcome.
