Queen's postdoctoral researcher Natalia Lyra e Silva talks about the relationship between Alzheimer's Disease and diabetes, in the second presentation in our new monthly Brain Storm series.

Scientific studies have found a relationship between Alzheimer’s disease and diabetes.  But what do a metabolic disease, which most commonly affects the middle-aged population, and a disease that impairs memory in the elderly, have in common?  Natalia Lyra e Silva describes how one disease can influence the other.

Part of the new monthly Brain Storm series of talks by students from Queen's Centre for Neuroscience Studies.  The March presentation, on Saturday March 7, will be on AI in Medicine: From Digits to Diagnosis; visit https://calendar.kfpl.ca/event/3905197 for more information.
