Welcome

The British Paediatric Neurology Association is the professional organisation for doctors who specialise in the care of children with neurological disorders.

The BPNA is a charity (1159115) aiming to promote the health and well-being of children with neurological disorders through:

  • Training and education of professionals working in the field of neurosciences.
  • Research into neurological disorders affecting children & young people.
  • Improvement of knowledge of professionals, the public and patients and their families through scientific meetings.
  • Providing support to members to facilitate the delivery of the above objectives.
 
 
 
Training & Education for Professionals working in Paediatric Neurosciences
 
The BPNA delivers:

Brain Research Trust – Apply for a Research Grant

Call for applications now open!

We are now inviting applications for the funding of translational research projects under our three priority themes: acquired brain damage, neuro-oncology, and headache and facial pain

We are interested in cause and mechanistic-based research that addresses areas of large unmet need and demonstrates a clear pathway to clinical impact in diseases of / or injury to the nervous system.

We will accept applications in the following three priority areas:

Acquired brain damage: research into interventions that promote recovery at the impairment level, particularly those that bring together enhanced plasticity or stimulation with rehabilitation.

Neuro-oncology: research addressing the biology, treatment and diagnosis of primary brain tumours and associated neurological complications. 

Headache and facial pain: research addressing the fundamental causes, mechanisms and relief of headache and facial pain.

 

*The application deadline is Wednesday 29 March 2017.*

 


 

 

A CELEBRATION OF THE LIFE AND WORK OF PROFESSOR BRIAN NEVILLE

 

DATE:             Wednesday 3rd May 2017

TIME:              0900 – 1330hrs

VENUE:          The Kennedy Lecture Theatre, UCL Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health, 30 Guilford Street, London WC1N 1EH

*At 1500hrs there will be a service at St George’s Holborn, 44 Queen Square, London WC1N 3AH

I should be delighted if you were able to join us for a series of lectures to celebrate the life and work of Professor Neville. 

Brian was appointed the first UK Chair of Paediatric Neurology, coming from Guys Hospital, in 1989. Upon retirement he was also the initial incumbent of the Prince of Wales’s Chair of Childhood Epilepsy until 2007. On arrival at the Institute he set on an expansion of both the academic and clinical neuroscience departments, responsible for the expansion of development of the epilepsy surgery programme and ultimately the complex epilepsy unit, as well as a combined neurological approach to neurodisability.

Throughout his career, the training and development of juniors in the specialty was key; he contributed on an international level to standardisation of training in paediatric neurology. Above all, he was an extremely caring man, who always thought of the children and their families first and foremost.
