Rachel is a lead investigator of the Healthy Brain Project and an early career research fellow at Harvard Medical School and The Florey Institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health. Her research interests focus on early detection of dementia via subjective concerns of memory decline and determining the reliability of subjective concerns as a risk factor for dementia. Her work is supported by the NHMRC National Institute for Dementia Research, Alzheimer’s Australia and the Brain Foundation.
The Healthy Brain Project is a community-based initiative to understand optimal brain health and aging. We are a group of neuroscientists based at the Turner Institute for Brain and Mental Health (School of Psychological Sciences, Monash University), who are committed to investigating why some people develop brain diseases and why others don’t. This will help us develop behavioural and pharmacological strategies to combat diseases like Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. Your interest and participation in this project can make a big difference, and we thank you for your time and your commitment.
