About Lexus Alzheimer's Gala

Every three seconds, someone in the world develops dementia. Almost half a million Australians live with dementia, and this figure is expected to grow exponentially by 2050. Now Australia’s second biggest killer, it rivals cancer as the most feared health condition in the nation. 

Recognising that dementia is one of society’s most pressing health problems, UQ’s Queensland Brain Institute (QBI) is committed to advancing dementia research. Home to more than 100 world-leading dementia experts in our Clem Jones Centre for Ageing Dementia Research (CJCADR), our scientists are focused on translating QBI’s advanced research into clinical treatments and interventions that will transform lives.

This event celebrates the collaborative efforts of all those working to advance understanding of the brain and better support Australians to age well. Join us and make a memorable contribution that will help CJCADR improve the lives of millions of Australians living with dementia and other brain disorders.
