Our highly sophisticated immune systems identify and remove pathogenic organisms to keep us healthy. Whilst this has been exploited in cancer therapy to destroy cancer cells, dementia researchers are now looking to do the same and destroy the toxic abnormal proteins we see in Alzheimer’s. Join us to find out how!

Speaker: Sophie Sanford, Visiting Student at the McEwan Lab, Cambridge Dementia Research Institute.
