Research efforts for a novel treatment for Alzheimer’s disease ?

Professor Andrew Tobin (Professor of Molecular Pharmacology)
Professor Tobin’s talk will be centred on research into novel approaches to treat the symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease and the prospects of next generation drugs designed to slow the progression of the disease. The talk will discuss the challenges in this area of research and the realistic prospect of progress.

Professor Tobin heads a research group that works closely with the pharmaceutical industry to discover new ways to treat neurodegenerative disease. He will present his own research in a way accessible to those who might not have a science background.

Sports concussion and dementia: what to believe?

Dr. Josie Fullerton (Postdoctoral Research Assistant)
Dr Josie Fullerton joined the Glasgow Brain Injury Research Group in 2016. Josie is currently studying human brain tissue from people who have experienced traumatic brain injuries to find out what the acute and long-term consequences are. Josie has a keen interest in public engagement and science communication. At Pint of Science, she will explain the latest findings on how sport concussion may cause long-term damage to your brain, and potentially lead to neurodegenerative disease.
