Event description

Description

Will we find a reliable diagnostic test and a cure? And in the meantime how will society cope with the impact of dementia?

Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia are one of the greatest medical challenges facing us. Dementia currently affects around 50m people across the world, and there is no way to prevent it and no effective treatment. However, a new surge of academic and corporate research suggests that the science of Alzheimer's may be reaching a tipping point.

As part of this year's FT Seasonal Appeal in support of Alzheimer's Research UK, we are bringing together an expert panel, chaired by FT Deputy Editor Roula Khalaf. She will discuss the research, the issues and the future with the FT's science editor Clive Cookson, Kate Bingham, managing partner of the Dementia Discovery Fund, and David Reynolds, chief scientist of Alzheimer's Research UK.

Doors will open at 6:00pm. The conversation will begin at 6:30pm, with drinks to follow until 8:30pm. Please let us know if you need any special accomodations.

All profits from ticket sales will be donated to Alzheimer's Research UK.
