FREE online event
When? Friday 29th January 2021, 9.00am–1.30pm
Join us for a fascinating series of virtual presentations on the cutting edge neuroscience that is helping to shape our understanding of psychosis throughout the lifecycle.
Using a clinical case as a backdrop, we will explore a range of topics including: genetics, autoimmune psychiatry, neuroimaging, perinatal psychosis and cognition in psychosis.
- Professor Paul Fletcher, University of Cambridge
- Professor Belinda Lennox, University of Oxford
- Dr Harry Rolinski, University of Bristol
- Dr Marisa Casanova-Dias, University of Cardiff
- Professor Rob Howard, University College London
This event is an initiative of the SW Neuronet in association with the RCPsych Neuroscience
Project which is supported by The Gatsby Foundation and Wellcome Trust.
RCPsych’s Neuroscience Project is partnering with the Physics of Medicine/PoLNET network to host a free-to-attend, one-day workshop on Neurodegeneration of the Brain.
Outstanding speakers from around the UK and beyond will cover topics including:
- Key questions in understanding neurodegeneration Giles Hardingham (Edinburgh)
- Clinical challenges for dementia research James Rowe (Cambridge)
- Biomarkers Henrik Zetterberg (Gothenberg)
- Imaging Heidi Johansen-Berg (Oxford)
- Scalable technologies for pre-clinical detection Ivan Koychev (Oxford and UKDP)
There will be time to put questions to the speakers and share ideas, and a presentation on funding opportunities for research in this area.
Sponsored by the Rosetrees Trust, this online, interdisciplinary event will bring together academic researchers working across the biomedical sciences and healthcare professionals.

The fifth RCPsych Neuroscience Spring Conference will take place as an online event on Friday 26 March 2021.
Three globally recognised thought leaders will present their ideas on 'The Future of Psychiatry and Neuroscience'.
Professor Wendy Burn will host a roundtable discussion and there will be a chance to put your own questions to the panel.
A limited number of bursaries are available to support medical students, postgraduate scientists and Foundation doctors to take part in this event.
Bursary eligibility and how to apply
Bursaries will be awarded if:
- you are a medical student or postgraduate scientist studying in a UK university, or a Foundation doctor enrolled in a UK Foundation Programme
- you have not previously received any other financial support from the Royal College of Psychiatrists, such as a bursary, award, or fellowship.
To apply, send a short (1-2 pages) CV and say in no more than 50 words what you think neuroscience can contribute to psychiatry.
