The Cerebra Network recently held a virtual event to celebrate the launch of their new dynamic network of researchers.
The Cerebra Network will expand on the the work of the Cerebra Centre, which was led by Professor Chris Oliver and developed a world-leading research programme through which the behavioural, emotional and cognitive characteristics associated with complex disorders and rare genetic conditions have been documented.
The launch was hosted by the Network’s four leads and alumni from the Cerebra Centre; Dr Caroline Richards (University of Birmingham), Dr Jo Moss (University of Surrey), Dr Jane Waite (University of Aston) and Dr Hayley Crawford (University of Warwick).
It was an exciting day of talks from each of the Network leads, as well as collaborators and guest speakers. They detailed the key areas of research they will be working on including research into sleep, atypical autism and mental health, while also continuing their work on self-injurious behaviour and pain.
They also highlighted how important families’ viewpoints are to their research and shared ideas for future research with attendees.
