She and her research group will join us from the Florey Institute, where she is the current deputy director of the Melbourne Dementia Research Centre, and co-head of Dementia Research.

Professor Brodtmann holds key international leadership roles, including Editorial Board Membership of “Neurology”, membership of the American Academy of Neurology Scientific Advisory Committee and member of the International Stroke Genetics Consortium Steering Committee.

She is a current Heart Foundation Future Leader Fellow, and is a Chief Investigator on two current NHMRC Centres for Research Excellence, an NHMRC Synergy Grant, two NHMRC Dementia Research Priority Grants and three MRFF Grants.

Professor Brodtmann and her team will significantly enhance the research strength in Cognitive Neurology, Stroke recovery and Ageing research at Central Clinical School,  the Alfred Research Alliance (A+) precinct and more broadly across Monash University. She will also continue her clinical and clinical trials leadership roles in cognitive neurology and Dementia at Eastern Health/Eastern Clinical School and at The Royal Melbourne Hospital, enhancing the collaboration of these precincts with the A+ precinct in this National Priority Area.
