Everyone is welcome to join us for our 2018 Winter Lecture - "Myths & Dreams" - to be delivered by Professor Karen Ritchie, Research Director, French Institute of Medical Research (INSERM).

What is the lecture about?

Myths & Dreams

We ended the 20th Century with the popular legend that Alzheimer's disease is normal brain ageing, it cannot be prevented, it cannot be cured. But thanks to the recent work of research laboratories and studies, scientists' view of the disease is rapidly changing, taking us into exciting new approaches to diagnosis and treatment, the dream of the 21st Century.

Professor Craig Ritchie, Chair of the Psychiatry of Ageing and Director of the Centre for Dementia Prevention, the University of Edinburgh, will also give a short presentation.

For the first time, this year’s lecture will take place in the beautiful Old Fruitmarket, in Glasgow’s Merchant City.

Ticket sales have now closed for this event.
