This is held in the anatomy department at Manchester Medical School and attracts delegates from around the world.

The Foundation has funded many research projects over the years. We are currently supporting the following projects amongst others:

The Manchester Skull Base Unit offers senior trainees in ENT and Neurosurgery the opportunity to train to a higher level in skull base surgery. These one year fellowships have a national and international reputation for high quality teaching and aim to enable the Fellow to practice independently as a skull base surgeon following completion of the fellowship. The fellows work closely with the senior members of the skull base team to provide the highest levels of clinical care. They also have the opportunity to contribute to the research and teaching activity of the skull base unit.
