The quest to find a cure for Parkinson’s disease

Mentored by a Madman: The William Burroughs experiment

will be given at the Royal College of Physicians Edinburgh, at 7.15 pm on 20th September, 2017, by Professor Andrew Lees MD FRCP, Director of the Sarah Koe PSP Research Centre at the Institute for Neurology, London, and Professor of Neurology at University College, London.

Tickets for the video relay are also available through the registration page but do not give entry to the main lecture theatre.

Latest news: tickets for the lecture are fully allocated, for both the main lecture theatre and for the secondary room  (video relay).

We hope to transmit a live web stream of the lecture which means that you can watch and listen to the lecture on-line. Please WATCH THIS PAGE for further details.
