Dear <<First Name>>, 

We are delighted to announce that our much-loved public lecture series is back with a twist. 

In the spirit of innovation and staying safe, we will be holding lectures with Florey scientists via Zoom in June and July. This means you can keep up to date with our latest research from the comfort of your living room. 

Our first virtual lecture will take place on Thursday 18 June at 11 am. Led by Dr Carli Roulston, this fascinating talk will examine how Florey researchers are developing new therapies for stroke recovery.

The second lecture will be held on Wednesday, July 15 at 11 am. In this not to be missed talk Professor Ashley Bush will explore the exciting progress in Alzheimer’s and ageing research happening at the Florey. 

Over the second half of the year, we will be scheduling more lectures, so keep an eye on your inbox and our social media channels for updates. 

We will provide detailed instructions on how to participate once you have registered via Eventbrite. If you have any general questions kindly contact our fundraising team on, or 1800-063-693.

We hope you can join us! 

Warm wishes,

Florey Fundraising Team

Stroke Recovery with Dr Carli Roulston - New therapies that repair damaged nerve pathways 


The stark reality is that 50% of people survive stroke and go on to live with permanent disabilities. Stroke impedes mobility, limits daily life activities, and isolates people from the community. 

Rehabilitation can improve outcomes but is often focused on compensation, and factors such as fatigue, depression, and demoralisation. 

It is time to look beyond acute stroke and focus on developing treatments that stimulate brain repair.  

This is exactly what Dr Carli Roulston and her team at the Florey are doing through the development of drug therapies and electrical brain stimulation to recover damaged nerve pathways in the brain, to improve quality of life.

Ageing and Alzheimer's Disease by Professor Ashley Bush - Imaging, diagnosis, prediction and clinical trials


Ageing and Alzheimer’s Disease: the search for the cure

Alzheimer’s has been a tough nut to crack, but we are excited that, for the first time, science, diagnostics, and drug trials are aligning. 

Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia- a brain disease where the neurons die off leading to memory loss and confusion. It is incurable, becoming more prevalent and is a tremendous burden on healthcare.

At the Florey we have several major projects to determine the cause of Alzheimer’s disease and how it is linked to its major risk factor, ageing. We are also carrying out imaging projects to improve diagnosis and prediction, as well as clinical trials of potentially curable drugs.

During this online lecture, Professor Ashley Bush will review the latest exciting progress in Alzheimer’s and ageing research at the Florey.
