The Florey Institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health and the Melbourne Neuroscience Institute, University of Melbourne share a proud history of hosting the annual Melbourne Brain Symposium. 

The symposium program is a testament to the remarkable breadth of neuroscience focused research happening here and internationally. We owe a great deal of gratitude to our speakers, and would like to, formally thank them all for their contributions to an excellent scientific program. 

Once again we will be presenting the Mendelsohn Student Lecture Award and featuring the award winning lecture as part of the symposium's program.This prestigious award recognises and honours an outstanding student in the Neurosciences and provides them with a platform to deliver a lecture to their community and peers alongside some of the most eminent scientists from around the world.

We are very much looking forward to the Symposium and trust that it will prove to be a valuable event for all of us. 

Warm regards

Professor Geoffrey Donnan and Professor Trevor Kilpatrick
