Research Update Meetings

Research update meetings are ideal if you are running an aphasia related research project that you would like to discuss with peers, a PhD or MSc project related to aphasia, or simply interested in hearing about current aphasia research.

If you have suggestions for topics for future meetings or your institution would be willing to host a meeting, please contact Rachel Hatchard at research-in-progress@bas.org.uk

                                                

Our next event is our Research Update Meeting at the University of Reading, Thursday June 6th 2019.

This event is free of charge to attend, but all attendees of BAS events (including presenters) must be members of the society. To join, please visit: https://bas.satorimm.com Registration is not yet open. Please keep an eye out for updates from BAS.

Call for project summaries
This year’s meeting at the University of Reading has an open theme. We welcome submissions on topics from across the spectrum of aphasia related work (assessment, rehabilitation, theoretical projects, clinically based projects, impairment, activity, participation, well-being, community projects and so on.). We also welcome submissions from projects looking beyond stroke and/or left hemisphere aphasia (e.g. progressive aphasias, right hemisphere stroke/brain injury or aphasia resulting from neurological disorders aside from stroke).

Please submit a summary of your research idea or project to:
