The Holmes to House conference explores where the areas of neuroimmunology, neurogenetics and neuroimaging come from, and where they are heading.
As part of the Royal College of Physicians' (RCP's) 500th anniversary celebrations, the conference takes place on the birthday of William Gowers, who many consider to be the founder of modern neurology. We examine Gowers and his work through his friend, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes series, while also looking at the era of big data in genetics, immunology and imaging, and how these are being used in patient care with both potential benefits and risks.
The conference will also discuss how concepts of clinical reasoning have evolved since Gowers' time in the second half of the 19th century, to the 21st century.
Programme organiser: Dr David Nicholl, Association of British Neurologists.
