Stress, Steroids and Sweet Roots

Mon October 6, 2014 @ 19:3021:00

| Free

Prof Karen Chapmans will talk from Cushing’s Disease to Addison’s Disease and not forgetting rheumatoid arthritis.

What do all these conditions have in common?
They are all related to glucocorticoids – a set of hormones which are produced naturally in the body, but which are also given to treat conditions like rheumatoid arthritis.

Karen will talk about her research at the University of Edinburgh over the last 30 years and will let us know what role licorice might play.

Please note that Danderhall Library has disabled access, but there are no toilet facilities.
