Please join us (virtual or in person) for our exciting symposium which explores the use and potential of electrical stimulation for neural repair. Our speakers will cover various aspects in this emerging field from the use of electrical stimulation to control cell behaviour, the development of electroceuticals and the application of electrical stimulation for medical interventions.
This event will finish with a panel discussion on the future of electrical stimulation for neural repair. We hope that you will be able to join us! Coffee and tea refreshments will be served to those attending in person.
