Associate Professor Kate Hoy receives grant for Alzheimer’s research

Alzheimer’s is characterised by a progressive decline in cognitive functioning with only limited current treatment options.

According to Alzheimer’s Australia, in the absence of a significant medical breakthrough, more than 6.4 million Australians will be diagnosed with dementia in the next 40 years, at a cost of more than $1 trillion.

Associate Professor Kate Hoy, has received a Mason Foundation National Medical Program Grant to continue her research into the use of Therapeutic Brain Stimulation as a novel treatment approach for Alzheimer’s.
