Day Three AAIC 2020 Podcast – Clinical Manifestations; Drug Development. Sharing news and views from the world largest dementia conference. Today Adam Smith chairs and talks with Dr Anna Volmer, Danielle Wilson and Dr Leonidas Chouliaras.
Dr Sarah Carpanini, Dr Tom Phillips and Dr Megan Torvell from the UK Dementia Research Institute at Cardiff University discuss neuroinflammation using mouse models to examine underlying pathophysiology during brain development and beyond. Join them to hear about physiological synapse loss that occurs during normal, healthy development of the brain contrasting to pathological synapse loss that occurs in Alzheimer’s Disease.
Hear more about the role of microglia and the role of the complement cascade as well as the virtues of using mouse models in general for studying an ageing disease.
Megan O’Hare interviews Professor Bart De Strooper, National Director of the UK Dementia Research Institute and Professor David Llewellyn, Director of the DEMON Network. Discussing their new partnership and what Artificial Intelligence and Data can do to help fight dementia.
