Fellowship Opportunities at GBHI, Trinity College Dublin
The Global Brain Health Institute, Trinity College
At the Global Brain Health Institute (GBHI), Trinity College we are committed to a life course brain health approach, tackling the many inequities and social determinants that drive dementia risk across the life cycle, with a particular focus on vulnerable populations such as the poor, the disadvantaged, older people, those with intellectual disability and with dementia across the globe. Using a values based, inter-professional and transdisciplinary approach, we focus on prevention, equitable access, care, detection and developing scalable interventions that promote brain health and optimize people’s quality of life.
Working together our fellows, faculty, staff and partners strive to create crucial change, for public health and society, in the field of life-course brain health.
