    On 19-20 March 2020, The Academy of Medical Sciences held its first ever scientific meeting on the topic of ‘The developing brain in health & disease’. The meeting brought together around 100 scientists from a wide range of disciplines and career stages – from early career researchers to global leaders in their fields – as well as other key players, such as funders and publishers. Attendees heard presentations on the latest advances and trends in neurodevelopment research, and discussed how best to drive forward further progress. In organising the meeting, the Academy aimed to foster new, innovative, cross-disciplinary collaborations, and help nurture the next generation of researchers in the field.
