It surpassed my expectations on all counts – informative, interesting and a very good day.
- Event attendee
On 20 November 2018, the Oxford Autoimmune Neurology Group held its second annual research engagement day, made possible by funding from the Wellcome Trust.
Over 80 people attended the event at Corpus Christi College, where they had the chance to find out more about how research translates into clinical care, as well as hearing carers' perspectives and listening to presentations from charities.
It was a great opportunity for people diagnosed with autoimmune encephalitis to get together and find common ground in shared experiences. It was also important for lab-based staff to meet patients, and to have the chance to explain more about antibodies in an innovative dance-like demonstration!
