The ASRP Exchange with Dr. Michael Jackson
Please join us for a presentation led by Dr. Michael Jackson from the University of Manitoba. Dr. Jackson is an ASRP Biomedical Grant recipient and his project is titled: "Identifying perspective therapeutic targets in Alzheimer's disease: Understanding the cascading affects of cellular deterioration".
Interested in finding out what else is happening in dementia research? Please check out other upcoming presentations from the ASRP Exchange.
Dr. Michael Jackson (pictured) at the University of Manitoba is fascinated by the way some healthy brain processes are subverted during Alzheimer’s Disease to turn toxic. Specifically, he studies brain-cell inflammation.
In most people, this kind of inflammation can help protect against micro-level threats. But during Alzheimer’s, it actually speeds up disease processes.
Find out more about this vital research – and its relevance for developing better Alzheimer’s treatments – in this ASRP Exchange online presentation.
