IHBI’s Real Health public seminar on July 21 focused on dementia and ageing. IHBI researchers discussed genetics, challenges, treatment options and the prospects of halting or slowing dementia and age-associated diseases in the future.
Presenters included Professor Elizabeth Beattie, who explained her research in understanding and managing wandering in long-term care; and a focus on quality of life for people with dementia.
Professor Graham Kerr detailed his work with older people, with an emphasis on posture, balance and gait; the link between neurological disease and falls; and Parkinson's disease.
IHBI Executive Director Professor Lyn Griffiths shared what her research team is learning about Alzheimer’s disease from clinical trials they conduct, each taking a slightly different approach to unlocking the debilitating condition.
A video of the event will shortly be made available, along with the PowerPoint presentations used on the day. Please bookmark this page and visit us again in early August.
