Alzheimer’s Australia Dementia Research Foundation – The Alzheimer’s Australia Dementia Research Foundation is the research arm of Alzheimer’s Australia which funds Australia’s talented new and early career dementia researchers.
We believe science holds the key to defeating dementia, so the research we fund is focused on the causes, care, prevention and potential treatments for dementia.
The objectives are to support innovative Australian research that offers the best hope of defeating dementia, to work with people with dementia to ensure that research reflects their concerns and to disseminate information about the progress of dementia research.
Dementia is the third leading cause of death in Australia and investment in research will help minimise its impact in the future.
At the moment, dementia touches almost 1.5 million Australians. That’s almost 342,800 Australians living with the condition and a further 1.2 million caring for someone with it.
