- Giovanna Mallucci is Professor of Clinical Neurosciences at the University of Cambridge and an Honorary Consultant Neurologist at Addenbrooke’s Hospital.
- She is one of the five associate directors of the UK Dementia Research Institute.
- A team of MRC scientists, lead by Professor Mallucci, who a few years ago identified a major pathway that leads to brain cell death in mice, have found two drugs which block the pathway and prevent neurodegeneration.
The venue was the Wellcome Auditorium in the Queen’s Medical Research Institute, the University of Edinburgh, co-located with the Edinburgh Royal Infirmary at Little France.
The lecture was arranged and funded by the Edinburgh Branch of Parkinson’s UK, the Lothian Parkinson’s Service Advisory Group, the MRC Centre for Regenerative Medicine at Edinburgh University, and the MRC Protein Phosphorylation & Ubiquitylation Unit at Dundee University.
