Cognitive Health Benefits of Phenolic Compounds
Wed 16 May 2018 at 7 pm, refreshments from 6 pm
Professor Jeremy Spencer will discuss his current interests relating to how flavonoids and other polyphenols, found in a number of fruits, vegetables and beverages, promote brain and cardiovascular health. In particular, the focus is on their ability to modulate specific intracellular signalling pathways pivotal in promoting blood flow, protecting against neurotoxins, preventing neuroinflammation and in controlling memory, learning and neuro-cognitive performance.
This is the evening technical lecture that forms part of the Flavourist Training Course, and is open to all Society members and guests - no booking required.
Professor Jeremy P E Spencer received his PhD from King’s College London in 1997 and is currently Professor of Nutritional Biochemistry and Medicine at the University of Reading. He is a member of the BBSRCs Basic Bioscience Underpinning Health Strategy Advisory Panel, is Editor-In-Chief of Nutrition and Aging and has published over 180 research manuscripts.
