UCL opens the Leonard Wolfson Experimental Neurology Centre

November 2013

The Leonard Wolfson Experimental Neurology Centre (LWENC), a specialist £20 million research centre funded by the Wolfson Foundation, has opened in London today (15th November).

Researchers at the centre will investigate exciting new therapies for neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's. The LWENC will receive its first patients in early 2014 and one of the first trials to be carried out at the facility will investigate whether immunotherapy can be used to tackle familial Alzheimer's disease - a debilitating illness which can affect people in their 30s and 40s.
