Lecture: shining a light on the newborn brain

03 February 2016
Brain injury in the baby is a real problem facing neonatal doctors and can result in life-long disability. Tonight Dr Austin talks about new ways to diagnose and treat these vulnerable patients.

What Topun and his team are doing at the Evelyn Perinatal Centre in the Rosie Hospital is trying to how the brain works using new technologies

Dr Austin said: “The goal of what we are trying to do is identify those infants who are most vulnerable to injury and problems later in life and analyse responses to see how those treatments affect them. This way we are better able to predict those babies who are most at risk.”

Come and hear Topun talk about his research tonight Wednesday 3 February at 18.30 at the Alice Fisher lecture theatre on the Addenbrooke's site
