The Brain Matters


The three panellists, Professor Richard Faull, Dr Barry Snow and Dr Cathy Stinear, truly engaged the audience of over 900 guests as they discussed the progress of neurological research in New Zealand and their own remarkable contributions. Kevin Milne was an excellent chair as he shared his personal experiences and was the perfect conduit between the speakers and the audience.
