In conversation with the Brand Group at the Gurdon Institute

Friday 15 March: 6:00pm - 8:00pm

Gurdon Institute, Wellcome Trust/Cancer Research UK Gurdon Institute The Henry Wellcome Building Tennis Court Road, CB2 1QN

Join us for an evening talk followed by discussion and drinks with our scientists.

Professor Andrea Brand talks about stem cells in the brain.

Food for thought: awakening neural stem cells in the brain

Stem cells in the brain can generate new neurons throughout an animal’s life in response to stimuli such as exercise, nutrition and injury. We aim to understand the signals that instruct stem cells to produce new neurons at will. The ability to reactivate neural stem cells from a dormant state raises the prospect of future therapies for brain repair after damage or neurodegenerative disease.
