2021 ALZHEIMER'S RESEARCH UK (ARUK) THAMES VALLEY NETWORK DEMENTIA OPEN DAY INFORMATION EVENT

Lab Notes: The journey from Reading to Oxford: Building roads to save memories. University of Oxford

This video was part of a series of three ARUK Thames Valley Network recordings for the Lab Notes event titled, 'The journey from Reading to Oxford: Building roads to save memories', held on Thursday 17th June 2021. We went behind the scenes in the research labs with scientists from our Thames Valley Research Network. They showcased examples of their experiments and discussed the progress and discoveries they are making about the diseases that cause dementia.

In this video, we hear from Dr Nora Bengoa-Vergniory about her work with donated brain tissue and stem cell technology, and what this tells us about Alzheimer’s and other dementias.
