Queen Square Symposium success

13 April 2010

The 2010 Queen Square Symposium took place on Friday, 19 March 2010.

The student organising committee led by Laura D'Castro and Lisa Clayton ensured it was an impressive, well run event. There was a diverse range of posters; with representation from both the Institute, and National Hospital, as well as colleagues from the Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience.

The afternoon culminated in a Guest Lecture given by Professor Martin Raff (UCL), who gave an excellent and though provoking talk on "Good News in Autism."
