The Centre for Systems Medicine is delighted to announce another speaker to its 2015 seminar series:
Prof. Sergio T. Ferreira.
Professor of Biophysics,Biochemistry, and Neuroscience,
Institute of Biophysics Carlos Chagas Filho & Institute of Medical Biochemistry Leopoldo de Meis, Federal University of Rio
Venue: Albert Lecture Theatre, RCSI, 9am Friday 27th February 2015
Lecture entitled: ‘”Abetaoligomers and brain inflammation link synapse failure to neuronal insulinresistance and depression in Alzheimer’s disease”
Prof. Ferreira has over 15 years extensive experience in investigating molecular and cellular mechanisms leading to synapse failure and memory loss in Alzheimer’s disease.His main research focus has been on understanding intracellular signaling pathways disrupted or altered when neurons are exposed to Ab oligomers, both in vitro and in vivo.
With particular interest in mechanisms leading to mood alterations in AD and in
shared mechanisms of pathogenesis between AD and diabetes. http://www2.bioqmed.ufrj.br/ldn/sergio.html
All very welcome to attend,
Prof. Jochen Prehn
