From microscope to stethoscope: The MUHC's public lecture series begins its 2nd season tomorrow
Date:10/2/2007

Montreal, October 2nd, 2007 - From Microscope to Stethoscope, the distinguished public lecture series organized by the Research Institute of the McGill University Health Centre (MUHC), is embarking on its second season tomorrow.

For this opening conference, Dr. Vassilios Papadopoulos, Director of the Research Institute of the MUHC, will be sharing the hope that his current research may bring to patients suffering from Alzheimers disease. Alzheimers disease is one of the most devastating neurodegenerative pathologies, for both patients and families; unfortunately its origins are still a mystery, explains Dr Papadopoulos. His latest laboratory findings could lead to remarkable therapeutic advances and relieve the difficulties doctors currently have in terms of diagnosis and treatment.

The second lecture will be given on Monday, November 7, 2007, by Dr. Lawrence Rosenberg, a world expert in diabetes, and the third one will be by Dr. Ronald Olivenstein, MUHC Asthma Clinic Director, on Wednesday, December 3, 2007.

"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.

The lectures will take place at the Montreal General Hospital in Livingston Hall (Rom L6-500) starting at 7:30 p.m. Admission is free and anyone interested is welcome.

The speakers will take questions from audience members during a discussion period following each lecture.
