    Durban and KwaZulu-Natal secure 2015 Bi-annual Conference of the Society of Neuroscientists of Africa (SONA)

    “The University of KwaZulu-Natal, Durban and the South African Province of KwaZulu-Natal have secured the right to host the 2015 Bi-annual Conference of the Society of Neuroscientists of Africa (SONA)", stated an elated Dr Musa Mabandla, the Chairman of the National Research Foundation's International Brain Research Organisation(IBRO) Committee and the School of Laboratory Medicine and Medical Sciences at the University of KwaZulu-Natal.

    “This regional congress will provide South Africa and the University of KwaZulu-Natal with an opportunity to showcase its achievements in the realm of Neuroscience or Brain Research. The University of KwaZulu-Natal is internationally renowned for its Neuroscience Research Programme and activities. In addition, Durban has a particularly impoverished component of its community and that is particularly the case on the fringes of metropolitan area of Durban.

    This congress will play an important role in building our capacity to deal with neuroscience related challenges and particularly those that are prevalent in poor communities. These areas could also serve as a useful case study for a technical tour during this congress. Furthermore, by hosting this congress in Durban many neuroscience practitioners and researchers from Africa will be able to attend this congress.

    Durban now has many direct flight connections into Africa and these are being extended on a regular basis. Durban is also easily accessible from Johannesburg, the key airline hub for Africa.”

    “This bid was a collaborative effort between the University of KwaZulu-Natal and the Durban KwaZulu-Natal Convention Bureau”, said James Seymour, the Chief Executive Officer of the Durban KwaZulu-Natal Convention Bureau. We are expecting some 500 leading specialists in the realm of Neuroscience to visit Durban for a period of about a week in the first quarter of 2015. This will not only lead to a much needed flow of regional delegates into our city and province, but undoubtedly raise the image of Durban due to the high profile of scientific fields of the like of Neuroscience.”
