Human Prion Disease in 2018

Fri October 12, 2018 @ 19:3021:00

| Free

Prions are misfolded proteins found in the brain and nerves of many species. They are normally harmless but, if they misfold, they cause a fatal and transmissible disease. This 45 minute talk will be the roller-coaster history of the BSE outbreak, the rise of the vCJD epidemic and how the outbreak of mad cow disease is still affecting people’s lives 30 years later.
