On Wednesday the 25th of July 2018 Daniel Segal of the School of Molecular Cell Biology & Biotechnology at Tel-Aviv University will give a seminar entitled Inhibiting aggregation of amyloidogenic proteins as a strategy for treating neurodegeneration at 12.00 noon in the College Lecture theatre.

There is now considerable evidence that protein misfolding and aggregation play a fundamental role in several neurodegenerative diseases and the search for compounds that may effectively inhibit this process may have considerable potential for treatment.  D Segal will report a series of landmark studies in which he and his colleagues have been able to identify small molecules that disrupt the formation of toxic protein aggregates, at least in the test tube.

All College students are warmly invited to attend this seminar lecture, espcially students reading Medicine, Biology, Biotechnology and Pharmaceutical Sciences.  The poster of the lecture can be downloaded here.
