CCD Memory Program researchers relocate to The University of Sydney
CCD Memory Program research will be led out of The University of Sydney's Brain and Mind Centre, with the relocation of several CCD Memory Program researchers and students.
Professor Olivier Piguet (Program Leader, CCD Memory Program) and Professor John Hodges (Chief Investigator (CI), CCD Memory Program) are both relocating with their respective research groups from Neuroscience Research Australia (NeuRA), The University of New South Wales to the Brain and Mind Centre, The University of Sydney. Approximately 30 CCD researchers will take part in this relocation, which is expected to be finalised by January 2017. Ongoing and current collaborations with NeuRA will continue beyond this time.
The Brain and Mind Centre is "a global leader in brain and mind science research, education and treatment, ... committed to the development of better treatments for disorders of the brain and mind, and leading improved health care for generations to come."
The research interests of CI Piguet's and CI Hodges' research groups include memory and memory deficits in adults, particularly those with frontotemporal dementia. Their research will complement and expand the research currently conducted at the Brain and Mind Centre, particularly in the areas of Alzheimer's Disease, frontotemporal dementia and motor neuron disease.
CI Piguet and CI Hodges will join existing CCD Memory Program CIs already at The University of Sydney as part of this relocation: CI Associate Professor Sunny Lah (Faculty of Science, School of Psychology) and CI Dr Laurie Miller (Sydney Medical School, Central Clinical School).
The CCD will continue to maintain its strong association with NeuRA and The University of New South Wales, through CCD Belief Formation Program CI Associate Professor Melissa Green, who receives support for mental health research by NeuRA.
