Research at Dementia Research Center aims to develop and detection of blood-based biomarkers and neuroimaging tests for the early diagnosis of dementia, paving the way for potential new prevention therapies and treatments for Alzheimer’s disease and other related diseases of the brain.

Currently, 1500 Singaporeans are participating in the center’s research. The research center will collect comprehensive information from each participant, comprising cognitive, health, and lifestyle questionnaires, physical measurements, and extensive physiological and imaging data.

At the research centre, participants will go through a cognitive assessment that will include state-of-the-art blood tests to find brain proteins, specifically amyloid and tau, as well as a brain scan to look for brain shrinkage and the presence of white matter lesions. They will receive a free report eight weeks after their visit, which they can use for a discussion with their doctors.
