Support for the BNA2019 bursaries has been kindly provided by Wellcome, a global charitable foundation, built on Henry Wellcome's core belief that science and research expand knowledge by testing and investigating ideas. Wellcome has long been a hugely important funder for neursoscience and neuroscientists, and one of its priority areas is improving understanding and treatments for mental health problems.
