Dementia Masterclass
November 27 – 29th 2017
Institute for Lifecourse & Society

The Dementia Masterclass is organised by the Centre for Economic and Social Research on Dementia at NUI Galway, supported by the Global Brain Health Institute at Trinity College Dublin and the University of California at San Francisco. We are bringing together a small cadre of international scholars and experts in dementia to talk about personhood, citizenship, psychosocial interventions, prevalence, outcomes and economics.

The objectives of the Masterclass are: to build research capacity in dementia among early and mid-career researchers; to deepen understanding of key dementia concepts; and to equip researchers with skills and expertise in conducting cutting-edge and high quality research in dementia. The Masterclass will also provide early-career researchers an opportunity to discuss practical and methodological issues in social and economic research in dementia with leading world experts in dementia.

Registration for the Dementia Masterclass is open at:

The cost of the 3 day programme is €450.   Please note places are limited to 50 participants.
