Join us for short informal talks that bring together leading bio-science researchers and clinicians.

There are around 50,000 people in the UK with a serious spinal cord injury but at present there is no cure for this condition. We will discuss current patient management and explore promising strategies to achieve spinal repair, including the use of modified silk from Asian silkworms.

This is part of the Cafe Med series of events in Aberdeen. These events are free and no booking is required.
