Free Alzheimer’s talks in Oxford
Alzheimer’s Research UK is encouraging the public to attend free public talks in Oxford on Saturday 19 March to hear about the latest dementia research. We are holding the event together with the University of Oxford. The event coincides with the Oxfordshire Science Festival.
We fund world-class research to find preventions, treatments and the ultimate cure for dementia. We are currently funding over 100 promising projects across the country, including nearly £1million of research projects in Oxford.
Alison Cranage from Alzheimer’s Research UK who will be speaking at the meeting, said: “The free public meeting is open to anyone who has an interest in dementia, as a patient, carer, family member or health professional. We will give an overview of the latest progress in dementia research, the challenges we face and an indication of what the future holds. There will also be a question and answer session so that people can raise queries and share their opinions.
"There are 6,100 people in Oxfordshire living with the daily reality of dementia and 820,000 throughout the UK – figures set to rise unless new treatments are found. Research is hugely underfunded but it is the only way to beat this disease.”
The meeting takes place at The John Radcliffe Hospital (Academic Centre, Lecture Theatre 2), Headington, Oxford, 10.00am -12.30pm.
