Dementia Research Centre

The Dementia Research Centre builds an environment that enables cutting edge discovery research with a focus on translating findings into treatments for patients.

In 2018, Macquarie University launched the first dementia research centre in New South Wales that is fully dedicated to discovery-based research and drug development for Alzheimer’s disease. The Director, Professor Lars Ittner, is an internationally renown expert and opinion leader in Alzheimer’s disease research. The Dementia Research Centre (DRC) brings together international and national leaders in translational dementia research and strengthen the University’s current investment into neuroscience research. The multidisciplinary team of the DRC strives to accelerate today’s discoveries into tomorrow’s therapies. The DRC currently includes eight research groups.

The DRC resides within the Department of Biomedical Sciences and the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences in MQ Health. Besides its world-class research program for dementia research, the DRC contributes to the teaching endeavours of the department and the faculty by delivering state-of-the-art training in applied neuroscience to both undergraduate and postgraduate students as well as MQ’s MD Program.
