Alzheimers Clinicians Research Network

The latest philanthropic venture initiated by the Myer family and the Yulgilbar Foundation has given young clinical academics the opportunity to embark on ground-breaking collaborative research in Dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.

The YARP Dementia Initiative in collaboration with the University of Melbourne has brought together five clinical academics with expertise in clinical neurology, geriatric medicine, old age psychiatry, genetics and ophthalmology with the goal of achieving a deeper understanding of mixed pathologies and clinical symptoms of dementia to improve treatment outcomes for patients and their caregivers.
