The Chair of the AAG Research Trust, Professor Linda Rosenman, said the grants provide support to creative and high quality projects that will make a difference in the field of ageing.
‘The AAG Research Trust has grown significantly since 2017 from one funding program for three grants distributing $15,000 to three funding programs offering ten grants that total $165,000. This would not be possible without the support of our most valued donors and partnerships including with the Dementia Australia Research Foundation.’
