Stem cells – The answer for all our ills?
Refreshments from 6:15 pm for a 6:30 pm start

Professor Zameel Cader, Consultant Neurologist and Director of the Oxford Headache Centre and Director of Stembancc, University of Oxford will talk about how the world continues to face major challenges in providing effective therapies for disabling and degenerative neurological disorders. Diseases such as Alzheimer’s have no effective treatments whilst other prevalent and disabling conditions such as chronic migraine have inadequate treatments. Stem cell technology may offer hope for new ways of finding better drugs or even regenerating lost brain cells. In this talk, the promise of stem cells will be examined against the real challenges ahead to deliver this promise.
