2018 Parkinson’s Lecture

The 2018 Lecture

This year’s lecture will be given by Professor Giovanna Mallucci of the University of Cambridge on 17th September 2018.

  • 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 title of her talk will be announced later.

The venue this year is the Wellcome Auditorium in the Queen’s Medical Research Institute, the University of Edinburgh, co-located with the Edinburgh Royal Infirmary at Little France.

Admission is free of charge but by ticket only. Tickets will be available through Eventbrite in due course via the link Register. Please watch this page for further details.

The lecture has been 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.
