Research event: What is the role of water in Alzheimer's disease?


What is the role of water in Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia?

A recent study reported that 152.8 million people will develop dementia by 2050.

Alzheimer’s disease is the most common type of dementia and as yet there are no cures for this disease as it is not fully understood, although various theories have been proposed.

Before Covid-19, dementia was the leading cause of death in the UK.

Scientific research is helping us to better understand Alzheimer’s disease and it is paving the way for delaying or preventing the development of this disease and other types of dementia.

On World Water Day, Tuesday 22 March, Professor Parvez Haris will present a lecture discussing the role of water in Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia.

Places can be booked here up to one hour before the event.

A link to join the talk will be sent up to 24 hours before the event.

If you have any questions or would like further information, please contact the Events Office.
