Professor Tolson Speaking at the Global Summit on Alzheimer’s Disease


Professor Debbie Tolson who leads the Alzheimer Scotland Centre for Policy and Practice at our Hamilton Campus is a plenary speaker at the Global Summit on Alzheimer’s Disease and other Neurodegenerative Disorders at the Champalimaud Centre for the Unknown in Lisbon on Monday 21 September.

Four Iberian institutions (Champalimaud Foundation, Queen Sofia Foundation, CIEN Foundation and CIBERBED) have collaborated to organise this major conference on World Alzheimer’s Day (21st September) under the Presidency of H.M Queen Sofia of Spain and Leonor Beleza, President of the Champalimaud Foundation.

The plenary talk will highlight UWS-led advanced dementia research and the innovative Palliare interdisciplinary education framework which was developed as part of the School’s contribution to this recently completed European Project.

Professor Tolson said: “It is an honour to be invited to speak at the Global Summit and an endorsement of our UWS international reputation for excellence in applied dementia research and dementia education. This is an exceptional opportunity to showcase our team’s leading work and to network with leaders in dementia healthcare, social care and biomedical sciences.”
