The Spread of Protein Waste in the Brain: A Potential Novel Disease Mechanism in Alzheimer’s, Huntington’s and other Neurodegenerative Diseases

19:30 - 20:00 (Talk in English) 

Our research interest is to understand the role and mechanism of cell-to-cell spreading of toxic proteins in neurodegenerative protein misfolding diseases In neurodegenerative diseases the nervous system gets progressively altered. Impaired structure and function, which is due to degeneration of neural cells, results in severe behavioural disabilities and often death of the patient.

Will Basel become Europe's main container port in the 21 Century?

20:15 - 20:45 (Talk in English)

The Arctic Ocean plays a key role in regulating the global climate. The past decades of warming have caused large extents of the multiyear sea-ice to be lost, with unknown repercussions in the future. Climate change will have environmental impacts on native species (bacteria to humans), but may also have far-reaching impacts on industries such as fisheries and tourism.
