Alzheimer’s Disease: Who will get it and what can be done?

DATE: Friday 11th October
TIME: 17:30-18:30
VENUE: Conference Hall, University of Gibraltar

Please join us for a talk by renowned US-based neuroscientist Kenneth Kosik M.A, M.D. In his first visit to Gibraltar, Kenneth will deliver a talk that draws from his extensive clinical and research experience within the field of dementia.


Our ability to predict Alzheimer’s disease is improving. Along with better predictions, the question of how to reduce one’s risk of getting the disease has become more pressing. While a cure for the disease remains elusive, measures do exist that can reduce one’s risk.


Kenneth S. Kosik, M.A. M.D. is a neuroscientist who served as a professor at the Harvard Medical School from 1996-2004 when he became the Harriman Professor of Neuroscience and Co-Director of the Neuroscience Research Institute at the University of California Santa Barbara. He co-authored Outsmarting Alzheimer’s Disease, co-founded the Learning and the Brain Conference for educators and conducted seminal research in Alzheimer’s disease genetics and cell biology. His work in Colombia on familial Alzheimer’s disease has appeared in the New York Times, BBC, CNN, PBS and CBS 60 Minutes. His UCSB Arts and Humanities commencement address was archived at the Graduation Wisdom Best Commencement Speeches website
