Keynote Speaker


Professor Roxana O Carare MD, PhD

Professor of Clinical Neuroanatomy, Equality and Diversity Lead

Roxana Carare is a medically qualified Professor of Clinical Neuroanatomy and experimental neuropathology in the University of Southampton. Having graduated in general medicine in 1994 in Bucharest, Roxana completed her PhD in experimental neuropathology in 2006, in the University of Southampton, UK.
