Despite dementia being one the biggest global health challenges we face – five times fewer researchers choose to work in dementia than cancer. A key objective of the new website is around addressing this issue by encouraging and supporting emerging talent to get involved in dementia research.
The website, developed by the office of the National Director for Dementia Research, provides a variety of support and resources for early career researchers – covering everything from jobs and funding opportunities, how to produce grant proposals, opportunities to ‘ask a dementia expert’, and a range of podcasts.
The site also features an online community – helping early career researchers to stay in touch or collaborate with their peers, share ideas and best practice, or network through the website’s forum and messenger service.
