Podcast – AAIC Day Three

This is the third and penultimate of our podcasts recorded on location at the Alzheimer Association International Conference (AAIC) in Chicago. Each day we will be bringing you news and information from our panellists who are all presenting and attending the world largest dementia conference.

Adam Smith the Dementia Researcher website Programme Lead for the NIHR is again hosting and today is joined by Oz Ismail (aka Birthday Boy) and Yolanda Ohene both PhD Students at University College London and Isabel Castanho a PhD Student at Exeter University Medical School working in the Genomics of Alzheimer’s Disease.

The panel discuss their own presentations, and just how much the brain is like a fantastic water park. We also discuss their highlights from the third day here at the AAIC, including sessions on ‘Microbiome and the brain’ and the latest research on the impact of circadian rhythms. Oz and Isabel also share their experiences as ISTAART volunteers, whilst also encouraging others to consider supporting AAIC19.

Tune in again tomorrow for day four, and our next panel.
