Brain Prize lecture

In 2018 Alzheimer expert prof. Bart De Strooper was awarded the prestigious Brain Prize, together with three other scientists. To mark the occassion, prof. De Strooper gave a lecture about Alzheimer research and the search for a cure.

We were super excited to welcome hundreds of interested people for this festive evening on Feb 12th at the Pieter De Somer aula in Leuven, featuring music by Trio Clé.


Bart De Strooper talked about recent progress in the field of Alzheimer's and why it is so difficult to find a cure.


The baroque ensemble Trio Clé brought some musical interludes. The trio consists of Korneel Alsteens on oboe, Ann Van Hecke on cello and Dieter Van Handenhoven on harpsichord.


To close the evening, a 'fundraising' reception was held after the lecture.
