Join our SVP Drug Discovery, Colin Stubberfield, at BIO 2022 for a panel discussion titled Tackling Post-Covid Cognitive Impairment. Find out from Dr Stubberfield how our combinatorial analysis of COVID-19 is identifying common pathophysiologies across multiple diseases including ME/CFS, Parkinson’s, and Alzheimer’s, which are all leading to cognitive decline.

Colin will be joined by Kiri Granger, Chief Scientific Officer at Cambridge UK-based Monument Therapeutics; Travis Bond, CEO at Washington-based digital health company Altoida, Paula Moran, Scientific consultant in Psychopharmacology and honorary Associate Professor at the University of Nottingham.

Widespread evidence shows that cognitive problems are the second most commonly reported symptom (after fatigue) in the >20% of individuals globally suffering from post-COVID syndrome. 86% of people reporting memory problems said that this impacts their ability to work.

Several mechanisms have linked COVID-19 infection with cognitive impairment, but a growing body of research has demonstrated similarities in the pathology of post-COVID cognitive changes such as neuroinflammation and other brain conditions, including Alzheimer’s disease, ‘chemo brain’ and other post-viral syndromes following infections such as influenza, HIV or Ebola.

There is now an urgent need to develop both diagnostic and treatment options for post-COVID cognitive impairment. In the UK, the NHS alone has recently invested £100 million to support long-COVID services and to establish pediatric hubs to co-ordinate care for young people.

Moderator:
Dr. David Cox, Health Journalist
