The aim is to foster new collaborative partnerships and facilitate the dissemination of ideas from researchers in different fields related to the study of brain mechanics, including pathology, injury and healing.

Focussing on a multi-disciplinary and collaborative approach to aspects of brain mechanics research, the workshop will present topics from areas including Medical, Neuroimaging, Neuromechanics and mechanics, Neuroscience, Neurobiology and commercial applications within medicine.

This workshop is the latest in a series of events established by the members of the International Brain Mechanics and Trauma Lab (IBMTL) initiative *( in collaboration with St Hugh’s College, Oxford.
