Brain Awareness Week 2018

BAW logoBrain Awareness Week (BAW) is the global campaign to increase public awareness of the progress and benefits of brain research. The University of Leicester is delighted to partner with the DANA Foundation for the sixth year to celebrate Brain Awareness Week

Our Brain Awareness event will be held in the prestigious Centre for Medicine on Wednesday, 14th March 2018.  

We will be inviting A-level and GCSE students to join us at the University for the afternoon and members of the public as well as University staff, students, their friends and families in the evening.

Along with talks there will be live demonstrations and the opportunity to meet PhD students and neuroscientists. This event is relevant to anyone with an interest in the brain and neuroscience, including biology, cell physiology & pharmacology, genetics, health sciences, medicine and psychology.

Please see here for the programme of events for the afternoon and the evening

For a flavour of our research we have set up a page with youtube and web links that you might find interesting. Please visit our page Brain Research at Leicester.
