"Detecting and Characterising the Protein Aggregates Formed in Neurodegenerative Diseases" – Prof Sir David Klenerman, UK DRI at Cambridge
12pm BST, Tuesday 28 April
*Open to all*
Hosted by Prof Kei Cho (UK DRI at King's), as part of the Basic and Clinical Neuroscience WeX seminar series.
Sir David Klenerman is a Group Leader at UK DRI at Cambridge, Professor of Biophysical Chemistry at the University of Cambridge and a Fellow of Christ's College. He is best known for his work on next-generation sequencing of DNA (which subsequently resulted in Solexa, a high-speed DNA sequencing company that he co-founded) and received a knighthood in the 2019 New Year Honours for his contribution to this field. Sir David has received a string of honours, including a 2018 Royal Medal from the Royal Society for his outstanding contribution to applied sciences and he was elected as a Fellow of the Academy of Medical Sciences in 2015 and Fellow of the Royal Society in 2012. Most recently, his group is focusing on super-resolution microscopy to develop new insights on protein misfolding and neurodegenerative diseases, which is the subject of his programme at the UK DRI.
