New NHMRC Dementia Fellowship for MAPrc Researcher

Associate Professor Kate Hoy, Head of the Cognitive Therapeutics Research Program and Deputy Director of Therapeutic Brain Stimulation at the Monash Alfred Psychiatry Research Centre, has been awarded a NHMRC Boosting Dementia Research Leadership Fellowship.

The fellowship, and associated project funding, will allow A/Prof Hoy and her team to investigate tailored brain stimulation approaches for dementia prevention and treatment. The fellowships are part of the Federal Government’s Boosting Dementia Research Initiative.

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.
