Regenerative Neuroscience Strategies for Healthy Brain Ageing and Dementia
Alzheimer's disease & other dementias
dementia | prevention | clinical trial | neuroimaging | epidemiology
Promotion of healthy brain ageing and prevention of dementia are amongst Australia’s greatest medical challenges and of utmost concern to the public. This Fellowship will support a multidisciplinary approach to these challenges based around regenerative neuroscience. Valenzuela’s group is a world leader in the science and practice of brain plasticity, and will lead twelve interlinked studies aimed at developing better ways to prevent dementia.
