QBI Alastair Rushworth PhD Fundraising Trek

There is currently no treatment or cure for dementia, which is the second leading cause of death in Australia and the most prevalent cause of death for Australian women. Dementia affects almost one in 10 people over the age of 65 and research at QBI is providing a pathway to potential treatments to millions worldwide.

In 2017, Janice Rushworth established the Alastair Rushworth PhD Scholarship Fund in 2017 in memory of her husband, Alastair Rushworth, who sadly passed away from early-onset Alzheimer's Disease in 2016. 

Funds raised through the QBI Alastair Rushworth PhD Fundraising Trek will support a PhD student conducting critical dementia research at the Queensland Brain Institute.
