Lunch'n Explore: May 4-Your Brain's Energy, Memory & Function: Insights from a Leading Global Neuroscience Researcher
Lunch'n Explore events feature a talk and a lunch in a tabled setting.
Event Description: Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, stroke-a diagnosis of these and other neurological disorders can strike fear into patients receiving them. Dr. Bill Frey's innovative research offers a more hopeful point of view, with the potential to not only treat these disorders but to prevent them. Dr. Frey will discuss his research and concrete steps you can take to preserve and enhance the health of your brain. As he says, "The potential for new treatments, even cures, has never been better."
Event Information: Friday, May 4, 2018, 11:45 a.m.-1:30 p.m., Opus Hall Room 201, University of St. Thomas Minneapolis Campus (seating will begin at 11:40 a.m. with meal service immediately thereafter)
Event Speaker: William H. Frey II, Ph.D. is Senior Research Director in the Center for Memory and Aging at the HealthPartners Neuroscience Center and Adjunct Professor in the Neuroscience Program at the University of Minnesota. His research and patents target non-invasive delivery of therapeutic agents to the brain and spinal cord for treatment of neurological and psychiatric disorders. Frey's non-invasive intranasal method for bypassing the blood-brain barrier to target therapeutic agents to the brain while reducing unwanted side effects has captured the interest of both pharmaceutical companies and neuroscientists. The intranasal insulin treatment he invented has been shown in multiple clinical trials to improve memory. With over 100 publications in scientific and medical journals, he has been interviewed on media outlets around the world, including the Today Show, Good Morning America, 20/20, All Things Considered, and the BBC. His research has been the subject of articles in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, U.S. News and World Report and numerous other newspapers and magazines. Frey earned his B.A. in Chemistry at Washington University and his Ph.D. in Biochemistry at Case Western Reserve University.
Fee for the event: $30 per person (registration deadline for this event is April 26)
