Developmental Neurobiology Academy (Dev Neuro Academy) is the widening participation summer school for Y12 students hosted by the Centre for Developmental Neurobiology.

Participants take part in a wide range of activities and experiences that invite them to understand neuroscience research and application. Students work with research scientists, PhD students and undergraduates to explore neuroscience within the University environment through the lens of interdisciplinarity & skills-based interactive workshops and projects. The objective of DNA is to support educational equality and to promote access to higher education. To read more about our ethos and approaches please read 'Connecting with the next generation of diverse neuroscientists: accessing research & inspiring through outreach'

Dev Neuro Academy is lead by Dr Leigh Wilson, Public Engagement Manager for the Centre for Developmental Neurobiology & the MRC Centre for Neurodevelopmental Disorders. Leigh works with the Group Leaders, Post-doctoral researchers, PhD students and undergraduates to devise and deliver the Summer School week.

DNA is supported within the Social Mobility programme at King’s. We work in partnership with the Widening Participation Champions programme at King's.
