The FRONTIER Research Group, established in 2007, is the largest specialist fronto-temporal dementia (FTD) clinic in Australia. We specialise in the diagnosis, prognosis, and care of people with FTD and related conditions. Our clinic is located at the Brain and Mind Centre in the University of Sydney and is integrated with the ForeFront collaborative research network.
We work with patients with FTD and Alzheimer's disease, as well as related diseases, including corticobasal syndrome and progressive supranuclear palsy. We also aim to assist carers through all stages of their journey through education, psychosocial support, and referral to specialist services. You can find more information about our work, including detailed information on the FTD syndromes and resources for carers, on our website.
Our work is supported by the government through the National Health and Medical Research Council, university funding, and community donations.
