Judith Pratt (University of Strathclyde) Senior
"I look forward to the BAP meeting every year for its ability to bring together scientific advances in preclinical and clinical research, and of course the social aspects. This year was no exception. I particular enjoyed hearing about progress on early intervention studies and on neuroinflammation. Both topics synergised well with the preclinical research being presented on genetic and environmental risk factors in preclinical models"
