“Research is to see what everybody else has seen, and to think what nobody else has thought”

(Albert Szent Gyorgyi)


On behalf of the Organizing Committee, I am pleased to welcome you all to the 14th Annual Neurology Research Day. The idea of this academic activity was conceived a decade ago, by one of the pioneer Neurologist Dr. Ismail Khatri and later inspired by the dynamic personality of Dr. Maimoona Siddiqui, for maintaining the memento and extending the event nationwide.

I have had the privilege to be a part of this event as a judge in the initial years, before I joined the division of Neurology, Shifa International Hospital, and way back in 2011. I feel delighted and honored to be a part of this event from its outset.

Annual Neurology Research Day is meant to promote interest in the academic Neurology and ingrain research attitude among medical/allied health sciences (students) and young physicians, where young aspirants will be given a platform to unveil their research endeavors in Neurology and related specialties.

Fore-sighting the need for improving the quality of medical research in this part of the world, we have introduced pre-conference workshops for better understanding the basis and methodology of research among medical/allied health sciences students.

In the end, I want to congratulate all the young researchers, who have actively participated in this event and are the true force behind the success of this thought provoking academic activity.
