About the Event

NeuroCup is a neuroscience-focused case competition designed by Youth Neuro Australia and sponsored by the Brain Foundation. Targeted at predominantly undergraduate students from universities across Australia, NeuroCup aims to foster problem solving and science communication skills, and will provide a unique opportunity to experience the world of academia where competition for research funding is ubiquitous. Starting on October 30th, this competition will require teams of 3-5 individuals to design a research proposal for a pre-clinical or clinical study aimed at reducing the morbidity of stroke in Australia. We welcome  diverse proposals across a range of areas, such as maximising stroke prevention, bettering our understanding of disease pathophysiology to enhance treatment options, improving quality-of-life for stroke sufferers and beyond. 

The proposal will form the basis of a written report (to be submitted on Saturday November 6th) and an oral presentation (to be presented online from 4-7pm AEDT on November 14th). Submissions will be evaluated primarily on their innovativeness, impact, and the feasibility and quality of the proposal. Prizes on offer to winning teams include $750 for first place, $500 for second place and $250 for third place.

Please refer to the NeuroCup Guidelines prior to registration, as this contains more information regarding the competition theme, key dates, eligibility criteria, individual and team registration details, and submission requirements. Note that we will also be livestreaming an information session from 6-6:30pm AEDT on Monday October 25th at to provide further information about the competition. 

Team will also be supported throughout the case competition via two optional mentoring sessions run by YNA. Also, a competition brief containing useful background information and a detailed marking criteria will be provided to registered teams at 9am AEDT on Saturday October 30th.
