Using Biology, Chemistry and Physics to Understand and Treat Dementia
Prof Frank Gunn-Moore University of St Andrews 14:30, Friday 28 April 2017
Physics Seminar Room (Building 46/5081)
It is now thought that there are potential 70 different neurodegenerative diseases that cause dementia. To understand and treat these diseases, we need to revaluate much of the central dogma and our approaches. In this talk, Prof Gunn-Moore will explain how my group is utilising all three of the sciences to understand the molecular changes that occur, development of a potential new drug and also the development of novel optic approaches to interrogate the nervous system.
