Governance

Formed in 2009 as an academic coalition among the five memory and dementia clinics affiliated with the University of Toronto, TDRA works with over 50 clinicians and researchers to foster provincial, national and international collaborations in the prediction, diagnosis, and management of dementia.

Governance of TDRA is comprised of an Executive Committee, a Planning and Advisory Committee (PAC), and a Clinical Research Core (CRC).

Executive Committee

The Executive Committee makes major strategic decisions, provides guidance on long-term sustainability, and ensures TDRA initiatives are aligned with the priorities of their own institutions.
