BNA2023 Special Partner: The Guarantors of Brain

The British Neuroscience Association (BNA) is delighted to announce The Guarantors of Brain as our Special Partner for the International Festival of Neuroscience 2023.

23-26 April 2023 will see the BNA hosting the International Festival of Neuroscience in Brighton UK. The Guarantors of Brain will join Festival Partner Parkinson's UK and 20 Partnering Organisations to work alongside the BNA to shape and host the whole event.

The Guarantors of Brain will also design and hold their own scientific stream within the Festival programme. In addition, they are kindly supporting accessibility of the Festival via carer grants to help cover expenses associated with caring responsibilities and enable participation in BNA2023. Find out more about applying for a carer grant here.

Taking place at the Brighton Centre, located directly on Brighton’s beautiful seafront, BNA2023 will be the largest neuroscience event of its kind across Europe in 2023, drawing together neuroscientists across disciplines and countries to celebrate and share the latest thinking in neuroscience today.

Professor Tara Spires-Jones, one of the Guarantors of Brain, said "We are delighted that the Guarantors of Brain can support the important BNA carer grants and very much look forward to our symposia at the festival, including exciting data about the effects of COVID-19 on the brain, some recent clinical and fundamental neuroscience advances published in our journals Brain and Brain Communications, and a workshop on the future of publishing in translational neuroscience."


About BNA2023

2023 will mark the 10th anniversary of the International Festivals of Neuroscience, which are held by the BNA, biennially, to celebrate and share the latest research and developments in fundamental, applied, translational and clinical neuroscience.

The first Festival (BNA2013, London) set the template for a completely novel forum in neuroscience. Unlike conventional conferences, the Festivals bring together multiple organisations - united by their interest in the brain and nervous system - to create a truly cross-disciplinary event, which combines fundamental research with clinical expertise and commercial translation, and public engagement as well.

Registration and poster abstract submission opens from 9th September. Find out more and register for BNA2023 here.


About the Guarantors of Brain

The Guarantors of Brain is a charity that aims to promote teaching, education and research in neurology and related clinical-academic disciplines. The Charity was founded in 1955 with a body of Guarantors drawn from leading British Neurologists, Psychiatrists, Neurosurgeons, Neurophysiologists and Neuroscientists. 

The journal of the Guarantors of Brain, Brain, has published landmark papers in clinical neurology and translational neuroscience since 1878, from studies that illuminate mechanisms of disease to novel clinical trials for brain disorders. Their new open access journal, Brain Communications, aims to be a force for good in the translational neuroscience field by facilitating a high standard of rigour and transparency and promoting career development of neuroscientists.
