Welcome to the Dementia Centre for Research Collaboration 

The Dementia Collaborative Research Centres (DCRC) were established in 2006 under the Government’s Dementia Initiative, funded by the Department of Health and Ageing after a competitive tender process. The three centres ('hubs') based at UNSW, ANU and QUT had many collaborative partners around Australia.  In 2011, administration of the DCRCs was transferred to the NHMRC and in 2016 respons ibility shifted to the newly established NHMRC National Institute for Dementia Research (NNIDR)

Under the NNIDR the 3 DCRC centres have been unified and renamed the Dementia Centre for Research Collaboration (DCRC) while retaining the 3 ‘hubs’. Alzheimer’s Australia is the auspicing body for the NNIDR and NHMRC has responsibility for outputs.

This new framework will serve to grow partnerships and strengthen ties with consumers and service providers, Dementia Training Australia and Dementia Support Australia in order to progress prevention, assessment, care and translation of knowledge into everyday practice, as well as building the next generation of dementia researchers.

Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Edith Cowan University


Andrea completed her PhD at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, USA under Dr. Craig Atwood, where she was investigating the influence of gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) and GnRH receptor signalling in the brain and its potential role in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer's disease.

Continuing her work in the area of Alzheimer's disease, she completed a year of postdoctoral work on TDP-43 pathology, prior to joining Ralph Martins? group at Edith Cowan University, Perth WA, as a postdoctoral research fellow at the Centre of Excellence for Alzheimer's disease Research and Care.

Andrea is part of the ECU biomarker team that works with the Australian Imaging Biomarkers & Lifestyle (AIBL) cohort and her projects focus on identifying candidate protein biomarkers for the early diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease, under the Dementia Collaborative Research Centre-Early Diagnosis & Prevention Stream.
