Free public lecture on Alzheimer's by Prof Ralph Martins

Monday 5th March 2018

On 28th March, the Riddet Institute will be hosting Professor Ralph Martins, the Foundation Professor and Inaugural Chair in Ageing and Alzheimer’s Disease at Edith Cowan University, Perth and a Professor of Biomedical Sciences at Macquarie University, Sydney. He is well-known and highly respected internationally as a prominent researcher in Alzheimer’s Disease research. He will be giving a free public talk at 6pm in the Spiers Centre (Palmerston North Boy's High School) entitled "Alzheimer's Disease: Let's Nip It in the Bud!".

Following an Australian study of over 10 years that has looked into the diet and lifestyle of over 1100 people aged 60-80 years, there is cause for optimism in the Alzheimer's Disease research sector. Prof Martins will be discussing the latest cutting-edge research on Alzheimer’s, including drug prevention trials, the latest in foods and diets for healthy ageing, and the importance of investigating non-drug approaches.
