LMS / ICS / UK DRI / Brain Sciences Mixer Event
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.
