Have you ever had a health related science question but haven’t had the opportunity to ask it? Well, now you can if you register for IHMRI’s Bite Size Science Webinars! To mark National Science Week, IHMRI researchers will be covering important topics such as pain management and care, hormones and humans’ need for connection, and the neurodegenerative condition Huntington’s Disease.

You can send through your questions for our panel to ihmri-communications@uow.edu.au

 

Thurs 19 August 12.30pm IHMRI’s Gabrielle Phillips and Huntington’s NSW ACT’s Robyn Russell – Huntington’s Disease

Huntington’s Disease is a rare, inherited disease that causes the progressive breakdown of nerve cells in the brain. The disease can cause movement disorders, cognitive disorders and psychiatric disorders and there are different stages to the disease. This webinar will explore what Huntington’s Disease is, who is affected, how it is diagnosed and what the symptoms are.

Tune in to hear from our local expert Associate Research Fellow Gabrielle Phillips from the Illawarra Health and Medical Research Institute (IHMRI) about her research into better understanding the disease and chemistry changes in the brain. Robyn Russell from Huntington’s NSW ACT will also be online to tell us about the support services available to those living with Huntington’s and their families. Robyn and Gabby will be available to answer your questions.
