The 5th Oxford International Neuron and Brain Mechanics Workshop will take place on 22 and 23 March 2018, in St Hugh’s College, Oxford. The event includes international and UK speakers from a wide variety of disciplines, collectively working on Traumatic Brain Injury, Brain Mechanics and Trauma, and Neurons research.

The aim is to foster new collaborative partnerships and facilitate the dissemination of ideas from researchers in different fields related to the study of brain mechanics, including pathology, injury and healing.

Focussing on a multi-disciplinary and collaborative approach to aspects of brain mechanics research, the workshop will present topics from areas including Medical, Neuroimaging, Neuromechanics and mechanics, Neuroscience, Neurobiology and commercial applications within medicine.

This workshop is the latest in a series of events established by the members of the International Brain Mechanics and Trauma Lab (IBMTL) initiative in collaboration with St Hugh’s College, Oxford. The International Brain Mechanics and Trauma Lab, based in Oxford, is an international collaboration on projects related to brain mechanics and trauma. This multidisciplinary team is motivated by the need to study brain cell and tissue mechanics and its relation with brain functions, diseases or trauma.

Speakers

Everybody is welcome to attend this free event, however registration is required via the workshop’s Eventbrite page.

Students and postdocs are invited to exhibit a poster. The best poster will be offered a prize.

The workshop is generously supported by the ERC’s ‘Computational Multiscale Neuron Mechanics’ grant (COMUNEM, grant # 306587) and St Hugh’s College, Oxford.
