Chair of the Department of Neurology, UCI School of Medicine

Monday, October 25, 2021, 6:30pm

 

The number of people affected by neurological disorders, like stroke, Alzheimer’s, and Parkinson’s disease, is on the rise. Using stem cells to regenerate areas of the brain that are permanently damaged in patients has been a long-held hope. But with hundreds of stem cell trials now happening worldwide, how do we tell the hope from the hype? Dr. Claire Henchcliffe, Professor and Stanley van den Noort Chair of Neurology for the UCI School of Medicine will discuss how stem cells might help in the fight to help millions of individuals with these disorders.
