Memo­rial lec­ture

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

The coun­try’s top brain sci­en­tist is de­liv­er­ing this year’s Bishop Sir Paul Reeves Memo­rial Lec­ture. Pro­fes­sor Richard Faull di­rects the Cen­tre for Brain Re­search at the Univer­sity of Auck­land. He is recog­nised in­ter­na­tion­ally as a lead­ing ex­pert in neu­rode­gen­er­a­tive dis­eases of the hu­man brain. He is ar­guably best-known for demon­strat­ing that adult brain cells are not, in fact, fi­nite and can be re­placed if they die – giv­ing hope to those with neu­rode­gen­er­a­tive dis­eases and brain in­juries. In his lec­ture Imag­ine To­mor­row’s World, Pro­fes­sor Faull will out­line the progress of brain re­search in this coun­try and the prospects for devel­op­ment of fur­ther treat­ments. The lec­ture is on Septem­ber 12 from 7.30pm at the Holy Trin­ity Cathe­dral in Par­nell. Visit reeveslec­ture.event for tick­ets.
