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.

Profile

Stephanie obtained a PhD in Neuroscience from King's College London, under the supervision of Drs. Robert Williams and Marcus Rattray. Her project investigated TNF modulation of AMPA receptor expression and function in motor neurones and the potential role of this process in the pathogenesis of Motor Neurone Disease.

Continuing her work in the area of neurodegenerative diseases, Stephanie joined Professor Ralph Martins' team in the Centre of Excellence for Alzheimer's Disease Research and Care, based at Edith Cowan University, Western Australia.

Stephanie is part of the biomarker team which aims to identify candidate protein biomarkers in order to facilitate the early diagnosis of Alzheimer's Disease, she also co-ordinates the Western Australian arm of the Australian Imaging, Biomarkers and Lifestyle (AIBL) flagship study of ageing.
