Costantino Iadecola, M.D., an expert in the molecular pathology of ischemic brain injury and neurodegeneration at Weill Cornell Medical College in New York, will present the 10th annual Meredith S. and John A. Oates Lectureship in Clinical Pharmacology on Nov. 3.
His lecture, entitled “Bright and dark sides of immunity in stroke and dementia: the gut takes center stage,” will be given during Medicine Grand Rounds at 8 a.m. in room 208 Light Hall.
Iadecola is the Anne Parrish Titzell Professor of Neurology and director of the Feil Family Brain and Mind Research Institute at Weill Cornell Medical College. His lab is investigating interactions between cardiovascular risk factors, stroke, vascular dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.
