Geoffrey Jefferson Brain Research Centre – Scientific Launch Event

Online webinar

The Geoffrey Jefferson Brain Research Centre will bring together some of the world’s leading scientists in brain tumours, stroke and dementia, alongside experts in brain inflammation, imaging and rehabilitation.

It will accelerate ground-breaking innovation, develop new treatments and translate research into healthcare benefit for the more than 10 million people in the UK – one in six – affected by neurological conditions.

The Centre is a partnership between the Northern Care Alliance NHS Group, The University of Manchester and Manchester Cancer Research Centre.

Directed by Professor Stuart Allan and Professor Andrew King, the centre is named after Professor Sir Geoffrey Jefferson FRS, the UK’s first Professor of Neurosurgery at The University of Manchester who worked at both Salford Royal and Manchester Royal Infirmary in the 1920s and 1930s.

Raj Jain, Group Chief Executive at the NCA, and Dame Nancy Rothwell, President of the University of Manchester, will welcome the new centre at an online webinar to showcase some of its pioneering work on Friday 30 April 2021.
