From Basketcase of Healthcare to Benchmark; how the battle with Huntington’s Disease is changing

20/11/2013, 12:30 - 13:30

Free

Speaker Charles Sabine: Since the 1980’s Charles Sabine’s career has taken him to Europe, Africa, Asia and the Middle East, where he witnessed first-hand twelve wars, six revolutions and four earthquakes. While reporting, he learned the extraordinary limits that the human spirit is capable of reaching in the face of tragedies brought about by both nature and humankind. In 2008 he decided to use his experiences as a journalist to become a spokesperson for promoting freedom of scientific research, and to raise awareness of degenerative brain illnesses – in particular Huntington’s disease, which has affected his own family. Charles Sabine has spoken at prestigious venues around the world, among them; the European and British parliaments; the Royal Institution in London and the World Congress on Freedom of Scientific Research.

This is a public lecture, all are welcome and encouraged to attend.

Organised by the Neuroscience & Mental Health Research Institute and the Cardiff Huntington’s Disease Centre.
