About this event

Join Phil Tinkler and Dr Andrew Robinson as they share their work at the Manchester Brain Bank. Phil is the Brain Bank Coordinator; he works in the community with people who want to donate their brains for research. Phil will offer an overview of the donation process, from registering through to annual cognitive tests that alongside the donated brain provides vital research information.

Andrew is the Manchester Brain Bank Manager; he will give us the history of the Brain Bank and highlight some of their research successes. He’ll talk and show images on the practical side of the Bank’s work – so what happens to a brain when it comes into the Brain Bank. Andrew will finish with junk proteins, how they cause neurodegenerative diseases and the techniques they use to see these in the donated brains.
