On 13th July, OxDARE and the Alzheimer’s Research UK Oxford Network Centre will be hosting Oxford Memory Research Day at St. Anne’s College, Oxford. Oxford Dementia and Ageing Research (OxDARE) was set up by the Oxford Biomedical Research Centre to co-ordinate Oxford’s response to the Prime Minister’s Challenge on Dementia. As well as supporting core research programmes, OxDARE’s mission is to create and maintain a collaborative network to aid communication between scientists and clinicians, and also to engage with the general public through educational events and research activities. The Oxford ARUK Network Centre brings together researchers in and around Oxford with expertise in dementia and cognition using a range of techniques including imaging, neuropathology, genetics and model systems.

This meeting brings together the ARUK Oxford Network and the OxDARE research network, for an event which the Alzheimer’s Research UK Oxford Drug Discovery Institute is excited to be in attendance. The theme this year is memory, and will showcase the latest developments in memory, dementia and ageing research, from cells and animal models to cognitive neuroscience and the clinic.  The keynote lecture will be given by Kim Graham, Professor of Cognitive Neuroscience in the School of Psychology, Cardiff University. The day will be set off with welcomes from both Richard Wade-Martins, the coordinator of the ARUK Oxford Network, and Clare Mackay, the coordinator of OxDARE.

The line-up of local speakers include:

  • Radu Aricescu (Nuffield Department of Medicine)
  • Liliana Minichiello (Department of Pharmacology)
  • Ed Mann (Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics)
  • David Dupret (MRC Brain Network Dynamics Unit/Department of Pharmacology)
