Community Invited to Forum on Alzheimer’s Research

The Center for Biotechnology and Interdisciplinary Studies (CBIS) invites all Rensselaer students, faculty, and staff to join them for a lunch discussion with CBIS faculty titled “Understanding Alzheimer’s Disease” at noon on Thursday, Nov. 3, in the CBIS auditorium.

A reception with hors d’oeuvres and refreshments will follow.

The discussion is part of series that introduces the public and Rensselaer community to the life-saving and high-tech research ongoing at CBIS.

The forum will include a discussion with Rensselaer researchers Peter Tessier, assistant professor of chemical and biological engineering; Chunyu Wang, associate professor of biology; and Wilfredo Colon, associate professor of chemistry and chemical biology. Each of these researchers will discuss their work in the lab to understand Alzheimer’s disease and efforts to develop new treatment methods for the complex brain illness.

A Q&A with the audience will follow.
