MRC Centenary Event

To mark the MRC Centenary, we would like to invite you to join us in celebrating the contribution that the MRC has made to medical research.

As you may have heard, the centenary of the Medical Research Council falls in June this year. To mark the occasion, MRC Centres and Units around the UK are hosting various public events. The MRC Centre for Neuropsychiatric Genetics and Genomics in Cardiff University is the only MRC Centre in Wales and is holding its public event on Thursday 20th June as part of this national celebration. We would like to invite you to join us in celebrating the contribution that the MRC has made to the research nationally and also specifically to the research that we have been doing in Cardiff since first receiving MRC funding in 1987.

The MRC Centre for Neuropsychiatric Genetics and Genomics has made fundamental advances in our understanding of a number of disorders including schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, ADHD and Alzheimer’s disease.  This public event will give our guests the opportunity to hear talks from our scientists and also about the experiences of some of our
carers/research participants.  There will also be a networking reception following the main event, where our guests will be able to talk to our research groups about their work, achievements and aims for the future. With mental health being such an important issue, this will be an opportunity to learn about some of the world-leading research that we are
undertaking in this area.

The event will take place at the Julian Hodge lecture Theatre on Thursday 20th June 2013; doors will open at 5.30pm for 6.30pm start with reception with refreshments to follow at 7.30pm. Tickets will be issued on a first come first served basis as the numbers are limited and we are expecting to be oversubscribed.
