SMP 2/17/07 | Chemical Agents as Triggers of Neurological Disease | Speaker: Rudy J. Richardson

Saturday, February 17, 2007
12:00 AM
170 & 182 Dennison Building

Speaker: Rudy J. Richardson, Dow Professor of Toxicology

Lethal "nerve gases" have been known since the 1930s and their mode of action is well documented. We know far less about neuropathic agents--chemical cousins of the nerve gases that produce neurodegenerative disease instead of death. However, research thus far has led to new methods of detection and opened up new avenues for understanding neurological disease.

Detailed Information
