Building a future for spinal cord injury research

Students at Summer School in Neaurotrauma

Neurotrauma Summer School

The school takes place every other year and is aimed at young clinicians and post-doctoral researchers in neuroscience and related fields. We run the school in collaboration with Wings for Life and attract students from across the world. The week long course in neurobiology of neurological injury is taught by leading scientists and hasĀ a particular focus on spinal cord injury, encouraging students to develop their career in this field.

The school attracts students from around the world including UK, Europe, China and the US. It is hugely popular and is oversubscribed by around 25% each year. By increasing the number of researchers in neurology, we can ensure that there is a future for spinal cord injury research.
