Description: NIH Director's Wednesday Afternoon Lecture Series

The Department of Neurodegenerative Disease’s research portfolio encompasses prion diseases (predominantly within the embedded MRC Prion Unit), Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders, Huntington’s disease, motor neurone disease and frontotemporal dementia and studies of the pathways of cellular senescence. The research philosophy is to combine basic and clinical translational research; many of the key contributions towards understanding the basic biology of these diseases have come from clinical and neuropathological observations, and efficient translation of basic laboratory research to the clinic is essential to provide benefits for patients at the earliest opportunity.
