Dementia Masterclass

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.

Who should attend?
The Masterclass is primary for early and mid-stage researchers, including PhD candidates, postdocs and others who are directly engaged in dementia research. Senior leaders in dementia services who have a background/interest in dementia research, service development and policy are also welcome to attend.
