About this Event

Our next online event will focus on one of the research studies we have funded through our grants programme. It will be hosted by our Chief Executive Jacqui Cannon and will be recorded for viewing afterwards.

We will be joined by Dr Jay Amin, Associate Professor at the University of Southampton, to talk about his research on what happens to the immune system when someone is living with Lewy body dementia. Papers on this research were recently published in two respected academic journals.
