These team grants will provide support for teams of researchers over five years to pursue collaborative research, promote effective translation of research, and develop capacity under a dementia research priority framework.

The Dementia Research Team Grants Scheme is part of the Boosting Dementia Research Initiative. Dementia Research Team Grants will provide support for teams of researchers over five years to pursue collaborative research, promote effective translation of research, and develop capacity under a dementia research priority framework. The priority framework was developed in consultation with international research funding agencies and spans primary prevention, secondary prevention and treatment and quality of life and care.

Funding will support dementia research across a variety of areas including:

  • Discovery Research
  • Clinical Research
  • Population Health Research, and
  • Health Services Research

Funded teams will be an integral part of the new NHMRC National Institute for Dementia Research and will contribute to the Institute’s goals to expand dementia research in Australia, ensure better integration with international research and form a focus for rapid translation of evidence into policy and practice.

Funding Outcomes were announced on 7 August 2015.
