The Aged Care Department of Bankstown- Lidcombe Hospital, led by Professor Daniel Chan, has been actively involved in a range of research related to Parkinson's disease and vascular diseases including stroke. The main focus of the Department's Parkinson's disease research has been in the molecular aspect of the disease.

Collaborative studies looking at treatment of vascular dementia with China are also being developed with a pilot study underway at Bankstown showing promising results.
