For the BNA to properly represent national neuroscience, we have established a network of BNA Local Groups at universities and institutes engaged in neuroscience research across the UK.
The Local Group network acts as a two-way conduit for information between members and the BNA Council and Committee. All Local Groups are headed by a Local Group Representative (LGR) which are in turn headed by the BNA LGR Co-ordinator. Since the LGR Co-ordinator is a permanent member of the BNA Council, the views and activities of all members are always represented at the highest level of the organisation; and information from and decisions made at Council meetings are immediately disseminated to the membership.
LGRs provide a point of contact for a number of member benefits within BNA. For example, any applications for Local Group funding are made throught the LGRs.
To find out more about the BNA Local Group Representative network, applying for LG funding, nominating a neuroscientist for a BNA Award, and advertising your neuroscience news to the BNA community, contact your Local Group Representative. All LGRs' contact details and links to relevant websites can be found below.
If your Institution is not currently represented by a BNA Local Group and you would like to set one up, then please contact the BNA LGR Co-ordinator, Dr Rosamund Langston (pictured right) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
