A team of researchers, led by the Centre of Misfolding diseases at the University of Cambridge, including Peterhouse Research Fellow Dr Thomas Michaels, have devised the first strategy to ‘go after’ the toxic particles that destroy healthy brain cells in Alzheimer’s disease. This could eventually lead to the development of new drugs to treat dementia.

It was fantastic to welcome so many to our 1828 Club luncheon tent at Henley Cricket Club on HRR Friday. We had over twenty in the lunch period, and another fifteen in the afternoon break from racing. A delicious sandwich lunch was washed down with copious pimms and sparkling wine, while our gazebo - very welcome due to the heat - was fitted out with brand new PBC bunting. Some excellent racing capped out a splendid day, and it should be noted that a number of PBC alumni had been racing earlier in the week, coached by our very own Bomber Harris.
