There are currently more than 520,000 people in the U.K. suffering with Alzheimer’s disease, and many more suffering from other forms of dementia. While most of us take our ability to remember, solve problems and speak coherently for granted, a person with dementia can lose their capacity to do all of these things.
We at KCL Neuroscience Society have decided to dedicate our fundraising efforts this year towards Alzheimer’s Society UK, to help create a world without dementia. Be sure to join us with a panel of experts to learn more about dementia research, working with patients with dementia in the NHS, and the work of Alzheimer’s Society.
Refreshments will be provided.
This event will be of interest to anyone studying or interested in Neuroscience (undergraduate (BSc/ Medics), postgraduate students (MSc, MRes, PhD), post docs, staff).

KCL Neuroscience Society
A little bit about us: The society was founded in 2005 with the aim of uniting students across KCL with a passion for the subject, and encouraging discussion, dissemination of ideas and engagement of students with Neuroscience and its allied disciplines. Our goal is to provide a platform for learning, the pursuit of original research and the development of career opportunities in the field.
Our core activities include regular academic events and meetings designed to engage and inspire students with cutting edge Neuroscience developments, as well as social events to establish a sense of continuity within the department and to provide a forum through which ideas can be expressed. Undergraduate and postgraduate students of all disciplines and levels are welcome.
Membership for the whole year is only £5 and it enables you to gain free or significantly discounted entrance to our events!
