This joint NHMRC-ARC Dementia Research Development Fellowships Scheme provides opportunities for postdoctoral researchers to undertake advanced training in the health, medical, fundamental sciences, social, economic and cultural fields relevant to dementia, in either Australia or overseas.

The scheme aims to support the best emerging dementia researchers and attract scientists into dementia research from other fields, such as neurobiology, immunology, chemistry, bioengineering, information and communications technology, genomics, epidemiology and cell and vascular biology.

Funding will support fellows to undertake research (with nominated supervisors) under a dementia priority framework based on national and international strategies, and spanning primary prevention, secondary prevention, treatment and quality of life and care.

Successful fellows will also be an integral part of the NHMRC National Institute for Dementia Research and will contribute to the Institute's goals to expand dementia research in Australia, ensure better integration with international research and form a focus for rapid translation of evidence into policy and practice.
