Event Details

Acquired Brain Injury Ireland is delighted to announce that our 4th annual #BrainPower brain injury research seminar takes place as a virtual event on Friday 28th May 2021 (9.30am – 1.00pm).

The theme for the 2021 event is Brain Injury Research in Ireland: How research is helping us respond during a global pandemic.
