Attend a research briefing

Our Research Briefings bring together some of the world’s leading cerebral palsy researchers to share their latest research findings.

These free events are an opportunity for supporters, researchers and the general public to hear the latest developments in cerebral palsy research.

For the convenience of our supporters, all research briefings are held in the Sydney CBD area.
