Our research

For decades, dementia has been hidden away – a silent crisis affecting millions. For just as long, funding for research has lagged far behind other medical conditions. We are changing that.

As the world’s largest dedicated dementia research charity, we are here to ensure that the best ideas, backed up by the strongest science, have the greatest chance to succeed. We passionately believe in the power of research to change lives for good.

Thanks to your support, we are funding more pioneering research than ever before.
