REVOLUTIONISING HEAD INJURY CARE AND RESEARCH - A ST HUGH'S COLLEGE LEGACY
Tuesday 16 May 2023
5pm (BST) / 12pm (ET)
The University of Oxford’s leadership in modern neuroscience originates in World War II when St Hugh’s College was requisitioned to house injured service men and women suffering with traumatic brain injuries (TBI).
Professor Gabriele De Luca, a Fellow of St Hugh’s, will present that history within the context of a new frontier where Oxford Neuroscience research is conducted. Oxford is developing neuro-rehab and neuro-restorative clinical care for those diagnosed with, or at risk for developing, dementia, Parkinson’s, TBI/CTE, Alzheimer’s, and other chronic brain diseases. The event will be introduced by Lady Elish Angiolini, Principal of St Hugh’s College.
This event is hosted by the University of Oxford North American Office.
