Please join the Center for Alzheimer Research for a lecture in our series "Opponent lectures".
In connection with PhD student Ying Wang's dissertation, we invite you to an open opponent lecture:

"CD33: From GWAS to Therapeutic Target for AD"
Dr. Elizabeth Bradshaw, Columbia University.
Dr. Bradshaw is the Adler Assistant Professor in the Department of Neurology at Columbia University. A main focus of Dr. Bradshaw’s work has been understanding the role of the human innate immune system in complex neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease. Interestingly, genetic studies of Alzheimer’s disease directly implicate the involvement of the innate immune system.
Currently, one of Dr. Bradshaw’s major research interests is the translation of findings from these studies, to molecular outcomes and potentially therapeutically targetable molecules in innate immune cells.
