Title: "Merging pathomechanistic studies of Alzheimer’s disease and the response of the brain to therapeutic ultrasound"


I have not presented at QBI for a while and whereas previously I have either focused on selective aspects of our tau- and amyloid-based research, or on our translational activities in the ‘therapeutic ultrasound’ space, today I would like to give an overview of the breadth of research done within my team and the direction in which we are heading, merging a wide range of technologies (from click chemistry to super resolution microscopy to neuromodulation and others) to gain a deeper understanding of pathomechanisms in Alzheimer’s disease and how different components of the brain (neurons, glia and endothelial cells) respond to different modes of ultrasound. 


About Neuroscience Seminars

Neuroscience seminars at the QBI play a major role in the advancement of neuroscience in the Asia-Pacific region. The primary goal of these seminars is to promote excellence in neuroscience through the exchange of ideas, establishing new collaborations and augmenting partnerships already in place.

Seminars in the QBI Auditorium on Level 7 are held on Wednesdays at 12-1pm, which are sometimes simulcast on Zoom (with approval from the speaker). We also occassionally hold seminars from international speakers via Zoom. The days and times of these seminars will vary depending on the time zone of the speaker. Please see each seminar listed below for details.
