Hi! My name is Katherine, I am in my 2nd year of the Cambridge Graduate Course for Medicine at Hughes Hall and I am this year’s CNSoc Vice-President. I have been interested in all things Neuro-related for a while! I previously read Natural Sciences at Jesus for my undergraduate degree specialising in Neuroscience. I went on to do a Masters in Research at UCL working with the Parkinson’s disease team and recently presented a poster at the Parkinson’s UK conference. I hope to share my enthusiasm for Neuroscience/Neurology with you all through our events and our Annual Symposium!

My name is Christina and I am this year’s Annual Neurology Conference organiser. I am a first year medical student in the graduate entry course at Hughes Hall. I have always had a great interest in Neurology, which is the specialty I wish to follow as a doctor.
