ECU's Professor Ralph Martins and his team together with the McCusker Alzheimer's Research Foundation Hall and Prior Aged Care, Oceanic Medical Imaging, Alzhyme and Lawley Pharmaceuticals WA are partners in a successful application by several Australian universities, research institutes and industry to the Cooperative Research Centre (CRC) Program of the Australian Government.

The partnership's CRC for Mental Health has been awarded $23 million for research.

The funding is part of the recent announcement by the Minister for Innovation, Industry, Science and Research, Senator the Hon Kim Carr, to provide a $100 million boost as part of the Government’s investment in innovation and collaboration supporting the implementation of the Innovation Agenda – Powering Ideas.

“From 30 applications, 13 were short listed and we were only one of four who received funding offers,” said Professor Martins.

“ECU's share of the funding will play a crucial role in assisting our group at ECU to address the diagnosis and treatment of Alzheimer's Disease.”
