Lecture by KTH Great Prize recipient Sara Linse Snogerup
A professor of physical chemistry at Lund University, Snogerup Linse’s research includes studying specific proteins that play a critical role in the diagnoses of Alzheimer's, Parkinson's disease and diabetes.
Time: Wed 2015-03-11 14.00 - 15.00
Location: F2, Lindstedtsvägen 26
Notable among Snogerup Linse’s scientific achievements is a collaboration with a research group in Cambridge which last year identified an important step in the molecular events that lead to nerve cell death in Alzheimer's disease.
The lecture will describe the results of recent studies in the field of protein aggregation with relation to Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease.
The mechanism of aggregation is decomposed into the underlying microscopic steps with subsequent analysis of molecular factors governing each step and the action of inhibitors.
