Branch meeting at Botley W.I. Hall, N Hinksey Ln, Oxford OX2 0LT, UK (map)

Prof. Kieran Clarke of Oxford University's Dept. of Anatomy and Physiology talks on Energy for the Brain: A ketone drink for Parkinson’s?

Professor Clarke’s research has led to a new food group, a ketone ester called ΔG® (pronounced "delta-G"), that may help in Parkinson’s by providing an alternative energy source. This is the story of how ΔG® was found and developed to the point at which it is being sold as a sports drink in the US and is now ready to be tested in Parkinson’s.

You can find more about Professor Clarke on the University's website here, and about her research group at this link.
