A Pint of Memory: How can stem cells help us understand dementia?

 Dr Selina Wray (Alzheimer's Research UK Senior Research Fellow at UCL Institute of Neurology)

Dr Selina Wray (Alzheimer's Research UK Senior Research Fellow at UCL Institute of Neurology)

Created Out of Mind collaborator and UCL researcher Selina Wray joins this Pint of Science event to provide a snapshot of the innovative work happening in her laboratory, including the research that has provided the basis for our ‘Brains in a dish’ project.

Progress towards understanding dementia has been challenging, in part due to the inaccessibility of the human brain during life.

Selina's talk will discuss recent technological advances in our ability to image the brain during life, grow human brain cells in the laboratory, and how these are accelerating our understanding of dementia and improving diagnosis and the development of potential treatments.

Joining Selina will be Peter Giese from King's College London, who will be discussing the biological basis of memory impairment in Alzheimer's disease.
