This week DPAG marked World Alzheimer's Day, which took place on Wednesday 21 September 2022, with an inside look into the Wade-Martins Laboratory.

The Wade-Martins Group conducts critical research into several neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer's Disease, Parkinson's Disease and Friedreich's Ataxia, with the aim to understand the molecular mechanisms of these disorders and help develop new treatments.

The video was produced by the Kavli Institute for NanoScience Discovery led by Professor Richard Wade-Martins, and featured DPhil students, Féodora Bertherat and Ajantha Abey.
