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.
