Cutting Edge Ageing Research: Hear from PhD Candidates and Early Career Researchers

This event will feature some of Tasmania’s emerging leading researchers on ageing. Two PhD candidates will share their findings about research set in both residential and community-based services for people with dementia. A highly successful early career scientist will also present about developing and planning for a career in research.
