Full / Full (industry) BNA Membership

“I value my membership with the British Neuroscience Association (BNA) for the opportunity it gives me to keep in touch with neuroscientists across the UK and Ireland. The annual meeting is a great place to learn and meet scientists at the cutting edge of science. I really appreciate the efforts the BNA is making around reproducibility and industry engagement.”
