Free Public Lecture - Sir Richard Faull "Exciting research developments on Ageing Brain diseases in NZ - challenges and opportunities to give better quality of life"

Wednesday 17 May

Sir Richard Faull's love affair with the anatomy of the human brain has traversed almost forty years, and has made him a man "obsessed" - but the 71-year-old said he is still just getting started. 

His obsession has led to ground breaking - and at times controversial research - which has revolutionised the understanding and treatment of brain disease. 

In 2007, Sir Richard was awarded the Rutherford Medal, the Royal Society of New Zealand's top honour, for his team's landmark finding that a diseased human brain can repair itself by creating new brain cells, something he had been taught as a med student was impossible. Highly regarded internationally, Sir Richard is the director of the Neurological Foundation Douglas Centre for Brain Research at the University of Auckland, where he teaches and oversees world-leading research on brain diseases. 

Please join us at 6.00pm at the Rolleston Theatre, Otago Medical School, Christchurch. Wednesday 17th May, 2017, for this free public lecture. Refreshments will be served  - REGISTRATION ESSENTIAL AT www.cmrf.org.nz/events
