IICN/RAMI Registrar's Prize in Neurology 2005

The annual IICN/RAMI Registrars Prize in Neurology, which this year was kindly sponsored by Janssen-Cilag, took place on Friday, November 18th, at No. 10, Ormond Quay. The excellence of this splendid Georgian house was a convivial environment for the very high standard of the case studies and research in neurology presented at the meeting. Photo judges

Dr. Helena Moore, chairperson of the committee, commended all of the presenters on the excellence of the presentations for the Registrar's Prize in both categories.

Mr. John Lynch, the owner of Number 10, gave a most interesting talk on the history of the house at dinner that evening. The portrait of Mr. Lynch's great grandfather, who had been a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland, hangs in the dining room of the house.
