Inaugural professorial lecture

Eventbrite - 'Gene, Diet, Health' - an Inaugural Professorial Lecture with Professor Jun Wei

More than 90 per cent of human diseases are related to a genetic component but the genetic make-up never works alone on conferring a risk of common health conditions. The gene-environment interaction is likely to play a crucial role in developing most of human diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular diseases and mental disorders. In this lecture Prof Wei will discuss how the immune system bridges the gap between genetic predisposition and environmental triggers in inflammation-related diseases.  

Professor Wei will present his inaugural professorial lecture on Wednesday 27 January at the Centre for Health Science, Inverness and will be available for audience questions.  The lecture will be followed by a light supper.
