Prof Nigel Hooper from the Institute of Molecular and Cellular Biology, Leeds University will be giving a seminar on Monday 4th July at 4 pm in SR2, Life Sciences Building.

Nigel Hooper’s research interests cover proteolysis in neurodegenerative and cardiovascular diseases, proteases involved in processing the Alzheimer’s amyloid precursor protein and the prion protein. cholesterol-rich lipid rafts which regulated the processing of the amyloid precursor protein, the prion protein in cellular copper metabolism and the resistance of cells to oxidative stress. He also has translational interests in candidate biomarkers for the onset and progression of Alzheimer’s disease and structure-based design and chemical synthesis to develop novel drugs to target Alzheimer’s disease.

This seminar should be very interesting, particularly giventhe quality of the one he gave some years ago.
