Resolution of Neuro-Inflammation in Cognitive Dysfunction and Pain

Wednesday, March 25, 2020, 11:30 AM - 12:45 PM

The New York Academy of Sciences
7 World Trade Center, New York City, USA

Presented By

The New York Academy of Sciences

 

Inflammation in the nervous system plays a key role in many acute health problems including neurodegeneration, Alzheimer’s disease, and chronic pain. This 75 minute webinar will explore how the body’s failure to resolve chronic neuro-inflammation contributes to disease, as well as opportunities to develop pro-resolving compounds as novel therapies.

In This Webinar, You'll Learn

  • The role of neuro-inflammation as a key component of acute global health problems including Alzheimer’s disease and chronic pain conditions;
  • How new research suggests that the failure to resolve neuro-inflammation may be a major contributor to the pathology of these diseases;
  • The latest advances in targeting resolution pathways to develop effective drugs for neurological diseases with high unmet need.

Marianne Schulzberg has been Professor of Clinical Neuroscience at the Department of Neurobiology, Care Sciences and Society at the Karolinska Institutet since 2005. Her research focuses on the role of neuroinflammation in neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and in recent years has focused on the potential roles of pro-resolving mediators in AD pathogenesis. She received her PhD in 1980, carried out post-doctoral research at Liverpool University and became Docent (Associate Professor) at the Karolinska Institutet in 1983.
