Huge congratulations to MRC CBU’s Rik Henson, who has recently been appointed as the new BNA President-Elect. The President-Elect, along with the President and Past-President, act as a figurehead of the BNA, representing the BNA externally, and helping develop the organisation’s overarching strategic direction, aims and activities of the BNA.
Rik said: ‘I am really excited to have been voted as President-Elect, so huge thanks to the Council for trusting me with this incredibly important role! I’m eager to make a contribution to growing the organisation and listening to what members need, now and in the future.’
One particular interest I have is to continue to shape and promote the value of reproducible and transparent research, and I’m excited about the part BNA can play within this, especially around the tools and guidance we can provide to members to support such research.’
I truly believe together we can look forward to some great things ahead with the BNA and its role within the UK neuroscience community.’
