Description

Centre for Dementia Prevention Open Lecture Series

The University of Edinburgh's Centre for Open Learning and Edinburgh Dementia Prevention present a series of public lectures to improve understanding of the neurodegenerative diseases that cause dementia. Lectures will be delivered by a panel of world-renowned researchers and psychiatrists who are experts in the fields of laboratory science, disease modelling and clinical trials investigating new treatments.

This four-part series will provide a comprehensive introduction to the biology of neurodegenerative disease, how research studies investigate these diseases, the ways we can use the power of data to predict dementia risk and the methods we can adopt, on a global scale, to empower individuals to improve their brain health and prevent the onset of dementia.

Developing Treatments for Neurodegenerative Diseases

Our third lecture focuses on the new ways we can look to treat brain disease before dementia. From drug trials to lifestyle interventions, fundamental laboratory science to studying large at-risk human populations, how can we apply the knowledge gained through research to develop the best strategies to prevent dementia?

Ticket and Event Information

The event is free and open to the public. To secure your place, tickets have to be booked in advance via this page. The lecture will take place in a lecture theatre which is accessible to wheelchair users and equipped with an induction loop system.
