Professor David Marsden FRS, DSc, FRCP, was one of the great neurologists of the late 20th century.
After working from 1970 at King’s College Hospital and the Institute of Psychiatry, he returned in 1987 to the National Hospital, Queen Square, until his untimely death 20 years ago in 1998.
In the 1980’s he co-founded with Stanley Fahn the Movement Disorder Society and the Movement Disorders Journal. He had a prodigious academic output, and trained countless Fellows from home and abroad.
This Symposium will take place in the Athenaeum, a Private Members Club established in 1824, of which David was a member, and is dedicated to his memory and to the future of the specialty.
It will comprise an afternoon of 10 talks by distinguished ex-Fellows of David, followed by a drinks reception and an optional Gala Dinner.
We hope you will join us for this special celebration.
