MICRA Annual Public Lecture

'Beyond the fiction and fear: finishing Alzheimer's for the future'

Peter Whitehouse
Professor of Neurology, Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, USA


  • 6.30pm - 8.00pm
  • Lecture Theatre B, University Place, The University of Manchester M13 9PL

Co-author of ‘The Myth of Alzheimer’s’ (St Martin’s Press), Professor Whitehouse’s research interests include the neurobiology of what he used to refer to as Alzheimer’s disease. His work provides a challenge to clinical and social perspectives concerning Alzheimer’s, raising critical questions about conventional wisdoms and assumptions about growing old. Professor Whitehouse provides a new approach to understanding the ageing brain, linking this with an ethically-grounded vision of what it means to age well.
