Marcus Yong
Hi, My name is Marcus Yong and I am a 3rd year Pharmacology student. I am running for Vice President of Dementia Research Society.

My interest in dementia research stems from the fact that despite its prevalence, there is still no cure for dementia. Unlike other prominent diseases, there is still a relative lack of awareness (both scientific and social) about dementia and its research. As students, one way I believe we can raise awareness is by creating opportunities to learn about the latest developments( via talks, journal clubs, etc), as well as fundraising for and volunteering with the respective charities.

As Vice President, my goal is to engage as many students as possible and providing opportunities for discussions about dementia. Being on the committee for various other societies in the past, I believe I possess the relevant experience and skills needed to support the president in running this club and reaching its goals.
