Dementia is a condition which is rapidly becoming the major healthcare struggle of the century, yet its insidious origins are currently not well understood… millions slowly lose their memories, while many more cling to the hope of a therapy.

Join us for our first, last and only talk of Easter term from the inspirational Professor Chris Dobson – a leading global voice on neurodegenerative disease. In this comprehensive and optimistic talk, Prof Dobson will focus on amyloid, which is believed to be the major culprit in these diseases. He will discuss recent progress in understanding the nature and properties of the amyloid state, the kinetics and mechanism of its formation, the nature and origins of its links with disease and the manner in which its formation may be inhibited or suppressed for therapeutic purposes.
