German researcher and recipient of the prestigious Peter Hilton Research Fellowship in Ageing Dementia Dr Liviu-Gabriel Bodea joined QBI in June.

Dr Bodea is an expert in neuroimmunology and will work in Professor Jürgen Götz’ laboratory at QBI’s Clem Jones Centre for Ageing Dementia Research (CJCADR).

“We are very pleased to have Dr Bodea joining our team,” Professor Götz said.

“His strong background in neuroimmunology and skill-set in this area will add significant value to our dementia program,” he said.

The $500,000 Peter Hilton Research Fellowship was established in honour of the late Peter Hilton by his wife Robyn and will support Dr Bodea’s research for five years.
