Is Alzheimer’s an immune disorder?

By April 3, 2019Community Events

Tune in this Friday, April 5 @ 9AM for the next episode of our monthly Facebook LIVE series, “Is Alzheimer’s an immune disorder?”

This month, we’re joined by Andrea Tenner, PhD. Dr. Tenner earned her PhD from UC San Diego and is an esteemed Professor in the UC Irvine School of Medicine and the School of Biological Sciences. Throughout her career, Dr. Tenner has received numerous academic awards and has published over 100 scientific journal articles. Dr. Tenner’s research examines the role of inflammation and how our body’s immune system responds to Alzheimer’s disease – and using this knowledge, her team uses mouse models to test possible new treatments.

To attend LIVE and ask Dr. Tenner YOUR questions, login to Facebook this Friday morning and search @UCIrvineMIND to view the video on our page. You can also click the link below to “Like” and “Follow” UCI MIND to receive notifications when we go live.
