Presentation: Successfully Combating the Dementia Epidemic: The Way Forward
This presentation will show that a “blood test” is coming of age and our pioneering work to develop an “eye test” both of which are relatively inexpensive and readily accessible to the wider population. We are also embarking on major prevention trials working closely with our collaborators in the United States and Europe that I hope will benefit the Australian population in the near future.
