NHMRC has allocated funding to support partnerships of multidisciplinary, national teams to strengthen Australia’s national dementia data assets and capabilities to deliver high quality information and analytic methods for dementia research under the Boosting Dementia Research Grants Scheme: Priority Round 6.
The supported research will:
- provide new capacity for reliable estimates of dementia incidence and prevalence, by different types of dementia
- support research toward the development of new prevention, treatment and care measures by Australian researchers, including with international collaborators, and
- contribute to planning services, monitoring trends, and identifying new markets and areas of need by governments, industry and providers.
