Neurobiology: Multiple Sciences, Multiple Sclerosis – An Interactive Presentation With Dr Hollie White & Dr Dawn Collins From Warwick Medical School

June 27 @ 15:45 - 16:30

Register here


In this session we will explore the most common, disabling, central nervous system, degenerative disease in young adults – Multiple Sclerosis (MS). We will cover the neuroscience of MS and demyelination, lesions in the brain and how MS pathophysiology links to presenting signs, symptoms, and diagnosis for the patient. And, because real-world health problems rarely fit neatly into single subject areas, we will also consider perspectives on MS from the field of public health, health systems and health psychology. ​

As we progress through the session, we will demonstrate the importance of learning about health problems using patient cases, which is our signature education approach for our BSc Health and Medical Sciences and Medicine programme.

By taking part in this session, students will gain a deeper perspective on the neurobiology that underpins the neurodegeneration associated with MS and a broader, more complex, understanding of the importance of placing the patient at the heart of investigating health problems.


Please note that, although the session is scheduled to end at 16:30, the team at Warwick Medical School will stay on until 16:45 to answer further questions about the topic or about studying Health and Medical Sciences.   


Lecturer Profiles: Dr Hollie White & Dr Dawn Collins


Our events are designed so that a group of students can take part from a classroom or students and teachers can take part as individuals, either from school or from home. This means that sessions will continue irrespective of possible school closures.

As a live, participative event, this session will not be recorded but slides and other resources will be shared after the event, where available.


Suitable for: Year 12 students (and equivalent) studying Biology, Psychology, and Health & Social Care. In addition to enriching students’ current studies, this is an ideal opportunity for anyone with a potential interest in Health and Medical Sciences or Medicine.

Preparation/Pre-Reading: Students may wish to consider the topic in advance and can also think about questions they have about studying at university level.

The IT Setup: The event will be run on Zoom and participants will be able to join using laptops, tablets, and mobile devices. If you are joining as a school group, we recommend connecting with one device and projecting on to a whiteboard. You will be able to interact with the university via a microphone and/or typed comments and questions. Full details will be sent to those who have registered (see below) prior to the event.
