On 30th April, Norwich School was delighted to host a fascinating lecture, the third in the series of Norfolk Cambridge Society Lectures. These Lectures are held quarterly, with the aim of bringing distinguished speakers to Norwich and making a significant contribution to the intellectual life of the county.
Charles ffrench-Constant, Professor of Medical Neurology at the University of Edinburgh, spoke cogently and with great authority on “Regenerative Medicine - can we help the brain repair itself?”. Charles ffrench-Constant was Professor of Neurological Genetics at the University of Cambridge from 1999 to 2007 and has since been Professor of Medical Neurology at the University of Edinburgh. He combines expertise both as a neuroscientist as well as a clinical geneticist, and his reputation is international. Regenerative medicine is one of the most exciting fields of medical research today and a lively question and answer session followed the lecture.
