About this Event

Join us for an evening with Dr Joanne Lin, as she shares her latest research on detecting neuroinflammation using several techniques including MRI scans.

Recent research suggests that inflammation in the brain may play a role in disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, depression, stroke, and multiple sclerosis.

There exists an enormous need for methods to measure this inflammation for both clinical research and clinical practice, a need that Joanne and her fellow researchers are hoping to help meet.

"We hope these techniques can be applied across many conditions where inflammation is involved, and provide objectively measurable biomarkers that can help us further understand the underlying causes and ultimately help in the diagnosis and monitoring of diseases, and identification of new targets for treatment."

There will be a mix and mingle with refreshments before the event from 5.30pm - 6.30 pm. The presentation will then begin at 6.30pm, with an audience Q&A to follow.

Ample free parking is available onsite.

Although this event series is free to attend, any donation you can make, no matter how big or small, is much appreciated. When you donate, you are helping researchers and scientists to make breakthroughs in our understanding and treatment of neurological conditions, conditions that affect 1 in 5 Kiwis.
