Apparently we know more about the surface of the moon than we do about our brain. Our magical, complex, precious lump of meat that makes us us. So how can we know how to fix it when something goes wrong? And what does shrimp vomit have to do with anything? Come and join us for a journey into the grey matter where we’ll explore the cutting edge of new technologies and treatments for conditions that are likely to affect us all…f...

Can I eat my way out of Alzheimer’s disease?

Dr Sarah Morgan (Non-clinical lecturer in Neuroscience)
Now that I have your attention, I ask you: how can we fix something we don’t know? The human brain is the most complex structure in the universe and unique to each individual. Understanding it is the challenge that every neuroscientist faces. So if our knowledge is limited, will we ever find treatments for when it goes wrong? I believe that we will, and in the meantime, while your diet alone isn’t the solution, there are a number of things you can do to reduce your risk of this disease. This talk will cover the history, causes, modifiable risks and future treatments of Alzheimer’s disease.

The problem is a perfect storm, the solution is shrimp vomit and a stamp

Professor David Baker (Professor of Neuroimmunology)
The brain is beautiful….until it goes wrong. Monoclonal antibodies have revolutionised the treatment of neurological disease, autoimmunity and cancer. These provide magic bullets to remove the bad guys. This tale follows the Journey of the World’s first therapeutic antibody and exposes the irony that antibodies can be the victims of the problems they were invented to eliminate. We apply science and generate technology to remotely monitor treatment-activity for the benefit of people with multiple sclerosis and any other conditions using therapeutic antibodies.
