DUBLIN, April 27, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- United Neuroscience, Ltd., today announced that company co-founder Lou Reese will present at the Fourth International Conference, Unite to Cure: A Global Health Care Initiative, held April 26-28, 2018, at the Aula Nuova del Sinodo in Vatican City. The conference, organized by the Pontifical Council for Culture and the Cura Foundation, brings together journalists, advocates and thought leaders to discuss the impact of scientific innovation in medicine on culture and society.
"At United Neuroscience, we believe that new vaccine technology creates opportunities to envision a future that avoids the terrible consequences of neurodegenerative disease on global health," commented Mei Mei Hu, Chief Executive Officer of United Neuroscience. "Just as vaccines like the polio vaccine transformed societies in the past, we hope to demonstrate transformative, preventive and therapeutic therapies that are accessible to all. We value the opportunity provided by the Cura Foundation and the Vatican to participate in meaningful dialogues with all those who support efforts to create a better, healthier world."
In his talk, "Democratizing Brain Health," Lou Reese, co-founder of United Neuroscience, will discuss the need to challenge the status quo in clinical research in order to make treatments for neurological diseases accessible on a global scale. Lou's talk will address potential parallels between the future of brain health and the dramatic historical changes in human society brought by vaccines, digital technologies and aerospace engineering.
"We live in an exciting and transformative era in health care, wherein many of the world's most deadly diseases and dangerous medical conditions are being addressed by a wide array of treatments," said Dr. Robin Smith, President of the Cura Foundation. "Here in this intimate setting in the Vatican, we've brought together some of the world's greatest thought leaders to collaborate and strategize about creating a world free of disease and suffering.
