Life-changing dementia research is happening right here in Brisbane

In a modern, stately building overlooking Brisbane’s exhibition grounds, scientists are so close to a breakthrough in dementia treatments that the optimism is almost palpable.

Led by Associate Professor Tony White, Group Leader of the Cellular and Molecular Neurodegeneration Laboratory, researchers are quietly studying how brain cells respond to different treatments at the QIMR Berghofer Institute for Medical Research in Herston.

Although science still doesn’t understand the causes of dementia, experts know that for existing drugs to be effective, they must penetrate the barrier between the blood and the brain.
