About this event

Brainworks: Sharing our cutting-edge local research in dementia, mental health and neuroscience

Talks are between 6.00pm and 7.30pm. Doors open at 5.30pm, following the talks you'll be able to network with our researchers and talk to them about their work until 8.00pm.

Please join us for a public open evening of three short talks by leading Cambridge scientists, who will discuss how their research is changing the future for people with brain-associated conditions. Discover how our research partnerships are making a difference to patients' lives and enjoy the opportunity to ask these 'Brainworkers' your research questions in a live Q & A session.

Find out why Cambridge is at the forefront of tackling major health challenges such as dementia, mental health and neurological conditions and what we are doing to turn research discoveries into life-changing treatments to benefit our patients. We also want to share with you ways for you to get involved in our research.

This evening is hosted by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Cambridge Biomedical Research Centre (BRC), a £114m partnership between Cambridge University Hospitals (CUH) and the University of Cambridge on the Cambridge Biomedical Campus that aims to accelerate healthcare innovation by bringing academics and clinicians together to facilitate research.

If you're interested in finding out more about research going on at your local hospital, this evening is for you.

Light refreshments (tea/coffee and nibbles) are available on arrival and during the exhibition.
