BRNZ Public Forums for Alzheimer's Awareness Month 2016

BRNZ ALZ month

In September 2016, Brain Research New Zealand will embark upon a nation-wide series of community public forums.

These offer the Alzheimer’s disease and dementia community with the opportunity to make direct contact with the researchers and to gain insights into the exciting and promising research which is happening nation-wide by Brain Research New Zealand’s researchers located at the universities of Otago, Auckland, Canterbury and AUT.

Dozens of teams of BRNZ neuroscientists and clinicians are tackling Alzheimer’s disease, dementia and mild cognitive impairment from every angle and ensuring that the entire spectrum of research is being carried out from bench to bedside.
