We are thrilled to announce that The Brain Conference will be back with a fantastic 2-day program in 2022! In order to be accessible to as many as possible, we will remain online-only.

Join us 24th – 25th February 2022

About us: The Brain Conference

BRAIN has published landmark papers in clinical neurology and translational neuroscience since 1878. The Guarantors of Brain aim to promote teaching, education & research in neurology and related disciplines, and we started the Brain Conference in 2021 to further fulfil this mission.

In 2022, the BRAIN Conference will take place online, on February 24-25th.

This two-day conference will feature a wide range of fantastic speakers from around the globe. We have invited a panel of neuroscientists and neurologists, leaders within their fields, who will curate and chair Topic Sessions featuring a mix of teaching talks and research presentations. The conference will cover a wide range of neuroscience disciplines, representative of BRAIN’s publishing remit.


BRAIN is proud of its broad readership, comprising both clinicians and scientists within the neurosciences. This conference is for our general readership – whether you are a clinician or scientist, a student or senior faculty, working directly with patients or in the wet lab, this conference will have something for you! The conference will be composed of ‘Topic Sessions’, representing a broad range of neuroscience topics. Each ‘Topic Session’, carefully curated by our Chairs, will feature a clinical teaching talk, a translational research presentation and a basic science research presentation given by invited speakers. We will also select up to two ‘data blitz’ presentations per session from submitted abstracts

The conference will take place online over 2 consecutive half-days. The first half-day will be ‘early’ (mid morning to mid afternoon) and the second half-day will be ‘late’ (early afternoon to evening). This will enable us to cover several time zones to engage a geographically diverse schedule of speakers and audience. 

Check back regularly & follow us @Brain1878 for further updates and speaker confirmations. 


Registrations and Abstract Submission will open in Autumn 2021.
