Fraser Nobel Building, University of Aberdeen

Presented by Professor Bettina Platt FSB PhD, Chair in Translational Neuroscience,
Alzheimer’s Research UK Network Coordinator (Scotland) and Dr Alasdair Lawrie, Consultant in Old Age Psychiatry, Royal Cornhill Hospital.

An opportunity to find out what is happening in the world of dementia research. Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia are a major unresolved health concern for our society, yet surrounded by misconceptions and hampered by unsuccessful drug discovery programs. Come along to hear about the hotly-debated causes, how we diagnose dementia and what is being done to develop better therapies.
