Dr Anita Goh is a clinical researcher. She is a research fellow and project manager at the National Ageing Research Institute, and works clinically at the Royal Melbourne Hospital, in the Neuropsychiatry Unit, with the world’s first Huntington’s disease clinic. She leads the Huntington’s disease research at the Academic Unit for Psychiatry of Old Age, The University of Melbourne.
As a clinical neuropsychologist, her work is informed by real life issues, and her research focuses on cognitive health, mental health, and quality of life in ageing, with a specialisation in dementia care - from preclinical to end of life care. She is passionate about creating a future-friendly environment for our ageing population and focuses on knowledge translation, engagement, and science communication, and is always keen on collaboration. She is committed to diversity, representation, and equality and is proud to be part of the collective that is making significant improvements for women in STEMM. Many moons ago, she won trophies for latin dancing but nowadays is more often found dancing the Hokey Pokey or the Baby Shark dance with her children.
