 Sunscreen Linked to Alzheimer's?

Two experts from the University of Ulster have been given funding by the European Union to assess the presence of any link between sunscreen use and Alzheimer's disease.

Professor Vyvyan Howard, a pathologist and toxicologist, and Dr Christian Holster, an expert in Alzheimer's, will undertake a three-year research effort after receiving funding of Ģ350,000 from the EU.

"The overall science and technology objective of this programme is to determine if engineered nanoparticles could constitute a significant neuro-toxicological risk to humans for two diseases - Alzheimer's and Parkinson's," said Professor Howard.

Other universities that are a part of the project include those of Dublin, Cork, Munich and Edinburgh as well as universities of California, Rochester and Rice and the Japanese Institute of Materials Science.
