Welcome to the Dunedin Dementia Prevention Research Clinic (Dunedin Clinic)

The Dunedin Clinic is based at Dunedin Hospital in central Dunedin.

Led by Dr Nick Cutfield, the Dunedin Clinic is run collaboratively between researchers from Brain Research New Zealand and health professionals at the Dunedin District Health Board.

Research volunteers who join the study, will undergo a series of assessments over time, allowing our researchers to look for early indicators of Alzheimer’s and other dementias, and to develop innovative ways to detect these diseases at a very early stage.

How to Find Us
The Dunedin Clinic is located on Level 2 of Dunedin Hospital, at 201 Great King Street. If you have an appointment at the Dunedin Clinic, please report to Reception on the ground floor. From there, our Research Nurse will meet you and take you to the clinic.
