For the first time in over two years, Amazing Brains returned as an in-person event at the Francis Crick Institute, bringing together both an in-person and virtual audience.
The event celebrated progress and innovation in the latest stroke research and was a part of our 'Stroke Research Means Everything' campaign. Find out more about the campaign.
The exclusive event was hosted by our special guest Mark Charnock, who plays Marlon Dingle in Emmerdale and our Chief Executive, Juliet Bouverie OBE. Presentations were delivered by three incredible speakers; Dr Terry Quinn, Professor Audrey Bowen and Professor Adewale Adebajo MBE, who each presented their own perspective on the impact stroke can have on memory and thinking, and were joined by 120 of our loyal supporters in person and over 600 guests online.
To find out more about Dr Quinn’s work and research, view this article which includes a Plain English summary at the end.
