Sixty of Australia's leading dementia experts made a commitment today to ensure that the government's $200 million dementia research boost would make a lasting difference in the prevention, treatment and management of dementia for all Australians.

In a meeting hosted by the National Health and Medical Research Council, research leaders, community advocates and federal and state government representatives presented ideas on how Australia could best direct its research efforts in dementia.

The $200 million includes funding for the NHMRC National Institute for Dementia Research as well as large scale research projects and funding to build the dementia research workforce, including $26 million of Australian Research Council funding.
