London Branch academic lecture: Ground-breaking brain scans combatting neurological conditions

28 March 2017, 6.30 PM - 28 March 2017, 9.00 PM

The Council Room, Level 2, Room 2.29, King’s Building, King’s College London, London, WC2R 2LS

An exciting opportunity to learn how modern brain imaging techniques are contributing to ground-breaking progress in the management of neurological conditions.

The London Branch of the University of Bristol Alumni is pleased to welcome Professor Steve Williams, who will give an academic talk on the role of neuro-imaging in conditions such as autism, dementia and multiple sclerosis.

The talk will be followed by networking over food and wine, included in the ticket price, in the company of your fellow Bristol alumni.

The event is open to all Bristol alumni and their guests – book your place online.

Professor Steve Williams, Professor of Imaging Sciences at the Institute of Psychiatry, King’s College London, has previously spoken at the University of Bristol’s Elizabeth Blackwell Institute for Health Research and we are pleased that our London alumni will now have the chance to hear from one of the world’s leading researchers in the field of brain imaging.

The event will be held in the College’s elegant Council Room at King’s historic site on the Strand, only five minutes’ walk from Trafalgar Square. Many thanks to King’s College London for providing the venue for this academic lecture – the two institutions have enjoyed a long-standing relationship since KCL students were offered premises and hospitality by the University of Bristol following evacuation during the Second World War.

Today, treating many neurological and psychiatric disorders still remains a global challenge because of limited access to the underlying biology of these conditions. Contemporary imaging methods now provide a new window into the structure, function, and chemistry of the human brain.

Professor Steve Williams, from the world-ranking Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience at King's College, London University, is one of the world’s leading researchers in the field of brain imaging. During the talk he will show how recent progress is helping to make far reaching assessments of complex conditions such as autism, dementia, multiple sclerosis, all of which now represent rapidly increasing health burdens on modern society.
