A first mixer event bringing together researchers from across The MRC London Institute of Medical Sciences (LMS) and The Institute of Clinical Sciences (ICS) with the UK Dementia Research Institute (UK DRI) Centre at Imperial and the Department of Brain Sciences.

Following an introduction from Professor Petra Hajkova and our Centre Director Professor Paul Matthews, we heard a series of talks throughout the afternoon showcasing some of the most exciting current research at the institutes. See the programme below for details.
