Event Description

Full Description:
Dementia is one of the country’s most pressing health problems. There are more than 353,800 Australians living with dementia: three in ten people over the age of 85 and almost one people over 65. With this number expected to rise to 900,000 by 2050, spending on dementia will outstrip that of any other health condition. It presents significant challenges to the health care system, which makes directed research programs aimed at preventing and treating ageing dementia an urgent priority.

Researchers at UQ’s Queensland Brain Institute (QBI) are driven by the insight that fundamental, basic research is required to provide a solution to the increasing challenge of dementia to our society.
