About the Event

The Oskar Fischer Lecture Series features invited scholars working at the vanguard of new ideas on the mechanisms, diagnosis and treatment of dementing illnesses.

The September lecture, “Structural Classification of Tauopathies,” features Marc Diamond, M.D. Diamond is the founding director of the Center for Alzheimer’s and Neurodegenerative Diseases and professor of neurology and neurotherapeutics at UT Southwestern. His research focuses on molecular mechanisms of neurodegeneration in Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders, with the goal of developing novel therapies and diagnostic tools. A therapeutic antibody he co-developed at Washington University in St. Louis is now entering clinical trials for treatment of dementia.

Following Diamond’s lecture is Jeffery W. Kelly, Ph.D., Lita Annenberg Hazen, professor of chemistry and co-chairman of the Department of Molecular Medicine at Scripps Research Institute, and Bill Seeley, M.D., Zander Family Endowed Professor in Neurology at the UCSF Weill Institute for Neurosciences Memory and Aging Center.
