Lawson’s Café Scientifique presents:
WHEN CONNECTIONS BREAK DOWN:
Slowing the decline to neurodegenerative diseases
In Ontario alone, an estimated 285,000 individuals currently live with some form of neurodegenerative disorder - Alzheimer’s Disease, Parkinson’s Disease, mild cognitive impairment, dementia and many others.
The experiences and symptoms for each person vary, but they share a progressive decline in their cognitive and motor function. It can affect their ability to work, socialize and live independently.
As our population ages, there is an urgent need to understand markers that will predict decline and identify targets for therapy that might improve long-term function and outcomes. This is where hospital-based research can make a real difference.
Join us on June 21 to hear an expert panel of scientists discuss groundbreaking and specialized research in this field, happening right here in London.
