As part of his visit to Oxford, Prof Lee Goldstein will be giving a seminar at Engineering Science on 07 October, 14.00 in LR8.
'Mechanisms, Neuropathology, Animal Models, and Computational Analysis of Blast and Impact Neurotrauma'.
All welcome. Coffee will be available.
Dr. Goldstein’s work is focused on understanding the role of abnormal protein aggregation in chronic degenerative disorders of aging. The work in his laboratory concentrates on Alzheimer’s disease, age-related cataracts, and other common diseases of aging that involve pathogenic protein aggregation. His team recently discovered the first evidence of Alzheimer’s disease-associated amyloid pathology outside the brain as well as a new transcription factor that plays a crucial role in cellular differentiation within the lens and brain. He and his laboratory are developing a laser-based diagnostic technology that will hopefully detect Alzheimer’s disease years before the first symptoms emerge.
