Vibrant Brains that Last a Lifetime
Join us on October 4, 2023, for “Vibrant Brains That Last a Lifetime ” by Roberta Diaz Brinton, Ph.D. The lecture will take place at the Health Sciences Innovation Building, 1670 E. Drachman St., Tucson, AZ 85721, and will also be live-streamed.
The Center for Innovation in Brain Science is committed to developing cures for Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis, and ALS – four neurological diseases of the aging brain. To achieve our mission, we have made discoveries that have advanced therapeutic development for these diseases. Equally important are the discoveries that revealed the risks and the splendors of the aging brain. A brief tour of our latest developments in our quest to achieve vibrant brains that last a lifetime will be presented.
Dr. Roberta Diaz Brinton leads the Center for Innovation in Brain Science at the University of Arizona. The Center is a university research/biotech ecosystem devoted to developing therapeutics for Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis, and ALS. Dr. Brinton is Regents Professor of Pharmacology, Neuroscience, and Neurology at the University of Arizona College of Medicine – Tucson.
Her neuroscience research spans discovery, translational and clinical science. She is an internationally recognized expert on Alzheimer’s whose discoveries have led to innovative therapeutics to prevent, delay, and treat the disease.
She is currently conducting four National Institute on Aging Phase 2 clinical trials including the REGEN-BRAIN© trial to regenerate the Alzheimer’s brain. She has authored over 250 scientific publications, holds multiple patents, and founded 2 biotech start-ups.
