Daytime Lecture - the Healthy Brain Project

Yen Ying Lim, PhD
NHMRC-ARC Dementia Research Development Fellow

Have you ever wondered about medical research studies or even wished to be part of one? Come along to hear about the Healthy Brain Project, a community-based initiative to understand optimal health and aging.

Dr Lim is one of a group of neuroscientists based at the University of Melbourne and the Florey Institute, who are committed to investigating why some people develop brain diseases and why others don't. This will help us develop behavioural and pharmacological strategies to combat brain diseases like Alzheimer's disease and other dementias. Your interest and participation in this project can make a big difference, and we thank you for your time and your commitment.

This 5 year online study is recruiting middle aged people with a family history of dementia.

The lecture will begin promptly at 11am and finish at approximately 12.15pm including question time.
