Part of the IBIOLI 2019/20 Activity Series. This lecture will outline how we aim to develop a gene therapy method to stop brain tumour related seizures. This approach will use an inhibitory ion channel, found in helminths (worms), that is activated when it detects increases in the neurotransmitter glutamate. We anticipate that this novel approach will stop abnormal brain wave activity that occurs during a seizure.
