Since the late 1990’s the Alzheimer’s Australia Dementia Research Foundation has been funding Australia’s talented new and early career dementia researchers, with the aim of giving these researchers a head start in building their careers. Giving out just over $10 million dollars’ worth of research grants to over 200 researchers during this time - science holds the key to defeating dementia, so the research we fund is focused on the causes, care, prevention and potential treatments for dementia. In this special podcast, I am taking a closer look at who we have funded over the past 15-20 years. Meet Lesley, Matthew, Michelle C, Zoe, Tim and Michelle K who are all passionate researchers working towards a world without dementia. In this episode we will learn that dementia research is more than just about finding a cure, it is about answering questions today which will help people living with dementia tomorrow. Listen as they share their stories, inspire and tell us how we can work towards a world without dementia.
