About Centre for Healthy Brain Ageing (CHeBA)

The future of ageing will be greatly impacted by the outcomes of the research undertaken at UNSW Sydney’s Centre for Healthy Brain Ageing (CHeBA). With dementia now the leading cause of death in the United Kingdom and the second leading cause of death in Australia, our mission is to stay at the forefront of research into brain ageing and neurocognitive disorders. 
 
Ultimately, CHeBA’s goal is for all people to achieve their full life span and enjoy a good quality of life unaffected by loss of cognitive ability – particularly Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. 
 
To achieve our research goals, we need your help.
 
Without doubt, one of the biggest global public health challenges in human history is dementia. There are currently 413,000 people living with dementia in Australia today; a figure which is set to increase to 536,000 people by 2025 and a staggering 1.1 million people by 2056. Funding is desperately required to advance our research in ways to prevent cognitive decline, improve cognitive functioning as we age, devise better care for people with dementia and to diagnose people at risk for dementia. The researchers are also working on developing markers of early decline in memory and other cognitive functioning, so that brain diseases can be detected before the manifestation of dementia.
 
CHeBA leads The Dementia Momentum initiative - a movement to bring researchers and the community together to change the future of dementia incidence. The goal is to drive momentum in awareness, research and societal change for a brighter future. You can read more about the initiative here.
 
Support CHeBA, UNSW and change the future of ageing in Australia.
