Under the umbrella of the 19th National Health Sciences Research Symposium being hosted by the Aga Khan University Stadium Road campus, we are proud to present the National Health Sciences Research Symposium: Short Film Competition.

This year's symposium is dedicated to the theme of Mind and Brain and the complexities, mysteries, and questions that are hidden within them.

Join us as we try to unravel these mysteries and have fun while we are at it!

A big SHOUT-OUT to two very talented people, Waqaas Akmal and Rijah Chhapra. Thank you to Rijah for the beautiful artwork and to Waqaas for this amazing poster!
