Sydney Dementia Network

The Sydney Dementia Network has been developed to accelerate the focus on dementia research at the University of Sydney

The official launch will be on 9 November 2018 and showcase current dementia research being undertaken.

We would like to invite all dementia researchers to come and celebrate the launch with lunch, a chance to network, and opportunities to discuss future plans of the Sydney Dementia Network. Registrations are free.
This will be followed by a Public Lecture by Prof John Hodges, reflecting on his experience in dementia research in Sydney, over the past 10 years.
