Life-changing research into dementia takes place here in Brisbane

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

Led by cellular and molecular neurodegeneration lab group leader associate professor Tony White, researchers are quietly studying how brain cells respond to various treatments at Herston’s QIMR Berghofer Medical Research Institute.

While science still doesn’t understand the causes of dementia, experts know that existing drugs can only be effective if they break the barrier between the blood and the brain.
