What are the Braincutting Sessions?

Professor Gentleman has kindly allowed for small groups of students to observe his neuropathology research at the Multiple Sclerosis & Parkinson's Tissue Bank, located at the Imperial College Hammersmith Hospital campus. These small group sessions allow for a unique teaching experience different to learning from any textbook - this is a real life opportunity for understanding the anatomy of the brain and pathology of disease. Last year, these sessions were very popular but immensely oversubscribed.

How do I sign up? 

Each session can only accommodate a small number of observers. The link to register has now expired.

Places will partially be allocated on a first come, first serve basis and partially to organise the groups to contain students of a similar year group. Please note we will only be allocating places to members of our society. Membership is £3 and can be purchased through our website here

Due to COVID precautions, we can only allow 3 students to observe per session.
