"Again this year, three of our most brilliant researchers invite you on a journey into a possible future, when current research has already turned into innovative treatments for patients, declared Dr. Arthur T. Porter, Director General of the MUHC. These lectures will give you a direct look at the intellectual vitality that fills our research laboratories and the enormous impact of this work on our daily lives.

Dr. Vassilios Papadopoulos, Director of the Research Institute of the MUHC, will open the lecture series on Wednesday, October 3, 2007 by sharing the hope that his current research may bring to patients suffering from Alzheimers disease. His latest laboratory findings could lead to remarkable therapeutic advances and relieve the difficulties doctors currently have in terms of diagnosis and treatment.

Dr. Lawrence Rosenberg, a world expert in diabetes, will present the second lecture on Monday, November 7, 2007, followed by Dr. Ronald Olivenstein, MUHC Asthma Clinic Director, on Wednesday, December 3, 2007.
