Ben Seymour - 'The Pain System - Top down vs bottom up'
In April 2016, Ben Seymour came to Manchester to give a talk to staff at Salford Royal and University of Manchester. Ben is an outstanding young neuroscientist who is potentially interested in moving back to Manchester where he trained. Please click here to see his talk.
Pain, The Brain and A Little Bit of Magic - Northwest Tour 2016
Following on from the success of last year's Pint of Science event (see below), The Human Pain Research Group have secured funding from The Wellcome Trust and are now due to perform at a series of venues in the North West of England.
Pain, The Brain and A Little Bit of Magic is a performance lecture which has been designed to tour to audiences of chronic pain patients, friends and families, medical professionals and as many of the general public as possible. Admission will be free and this will be a great opportunity to pass on really useful medical knowledge to support chronic pain sufferers. The tour will begin early April 2016 and there will be a series of 7 shows over the following 10 weeks.
For more information, please see the following webpage: http://www.bbmh.manchester.ac.uk/research/ccn/pain/events/PainTheBrainandabitofMagic

Professor Jones will also be appearing in 'Wanted' on 22nd and 23rd April 2016 at the West Yorkshire Playhouse. Please see https://www.wyp.org.uk/events/transform16/ for further details.

Pint of Science Event 2015
The Pint of Science festival aims to deliver interesting, fun, relevant talks on the latest science research in an accessible format to the public – all in the pub! We want to provide a platform which allows people to discuss research with the people who carry it out. It is run by volunteers and was established by a community of postgraduate and postdoctoral researchers in 2012. The festival takes place annually over three days simultaneously in pubs across the world. Pint of Science is a non-profit organisation.
Professro Jones will be taking part in this years Pint of Science Event on Tues 19th May 2015 at The Old Monkey Pub in Manchester City Centre, 7pm - 10pm. For further information please see http://pintofscience.co.uk/
