SEMINAR: The neuropathology of Alzheimerís and Parkinsonís diseases: defining preclinical stages.
|The neuropathology of Alzheimerís and Parkinsonís diseases: defining preclinical stages. : School of Anatomy & Human Biology Seminar Series
The Seminar: The current world wide accepted consensus criteria for neuropathological staging of Alzheimerís and Parkinsonís diseases (AD & PD) have been developed in his Anatomy lab in Germany (Braak stages). In the seminar, Estifanos will briefly introduce these staging systems and emphasize the current search for the preclinical stages of PD & AD.
The Speaker: Estifanos earned his medical degree from the University of GŲttingen, Germany, in 1993. In Germany, he worked as a general pathologist and neuropathologist for almost three years and as clinical neuroanatomist for 12 years. He started working at the University of Queensland (School of Biomedical Sciences, Department of Anatomy & Developmental Biology) in 2009 as a senior lecturer for anatomy. His primary research interests include understanding the genetic risk profiles and the heterogeneity of the pathological and clinical features of neurodegenerative diseases (including Alzheimerís disease and Lewy body diseases, e.g. Parkinsonís disease and dementia with Lewy bodies).
