  Director's Invitation

"The annual IICN Registrar's Prize Meeting is a highlight of the academic calendar in Irish Neurosciences. Each year it showcases the strength and depth of clinical and academic research carried out in Ireland by registrars and SpRs in Neurology and Neurosurgery, as well as Neuropathology, Neuro-rehabilitation, Clinical Neurophysiology and Paediatric Neurology.
The meeting is an opportunity for Registrars to platform their work to their peers and Consultants as well a chance to compete for the prestigious prize for best original research and best case report. The event is always richly informative and application will be made for CME accreditation. We are grateful to our sponsors, Biogen Idec, for their kind support of this meeting. This year we look forward to a high volume of participation from all branches of the Clinical Neurosciences, to enhance the day. We hope that the occasion will also be a memorable social opportunity at a nice time in the academic year."                                                                                - Dr. John McHugh
