Researchers

Together we will create a world without Alzheimer’s disease – a devastating condition that takes memories and lives.

Together, our researchers and supporters will change the world and make a real and long term difference to individuals and the whole community.

Since 2001 the Foundation has provided significant support to the work of acclaimed researchers undertaking leading edge projects. Director of Research Ralph Martins AO, is an internationally recognised scientist, Professor of Alzheimer’s and Ageing at Edith Cowan University, and was awarded WA Australian of the Year in 2010.

We aim to increase the understanding of the causes of the disease, develop an early diagnosis, and identify interventions and treatments to:

  • stop the development of the disease,
  • defer its onset,
  • slow or halt its progression, and
  • improve treatments once the condition has developed.
