If it doesn't work, it's physics REPEATED - T24

Thursday 5th January 2017

12:00 - 13:00

Location : AMS, G9

Should we avoid demonstrations or class practical work for fear of failure? This session will show nearly two dozen practical items. Many have been described in ASE's School Science Review (SSR). Following similar presentations at previous ASE conferences, some topics will be different and while drawing from various areas, a focus this year will be on wave topics including a 'driving lesson' on the use of a ripple tank.

Frontier Science: Atherosclerosis and the oxidation of low density lipoprotein in lysosomes: the enemy within - T20

Thursday 5th January 2017

12:00 - 13:00

Location : Henley Business School, G15

Speakers

  1. School of Biological Sciences, University of Reading

Furring up of arteries with cholesterol leads to atherosclerosis, causing heart attacks and thrombotic strokes. Cholesterol carried in low density lipoprotein (LDL) or �bad cholesterol'is oxidised (becomes rancid) in the walls of arteries and this is thought to be damaging to arteries. We have discovered that LDL can be oxidised not in the extracellular space of the arterial wall, as was thought, but inside organelles called lysosomes in cells. We have also discovered that an antioxidant drug called cysteamine, which accumulates in lysosomes, inhibits LDL oxidation in lysosomes and decreases atherosclerosis in animals.
