How we fund research

Alzheimer’s Research UK is dedicated to funding the best quality science and the most ambitious ideas that will take us closer to defeating dementia.

To make sure that we fund the highest quality projects with the best chance of success, we have a thorough peer review process which follows guidelines set out by the Association of Medical Research Charities.

Our world-class advisory panels ensure that we are rigorous and smart in our funding decisions.

We have a Grants Review Board of over 15 UK-based research experts who review all our applications for grant funding, along with input from expert reviewers from across the world.

We also have a separate Clinical Trials Advisory Panel whose expertise is specific to clinical trials and help advise us on funding through our Global Clinical Trials Fund.

It’s important that we’re taking every opportunity on the global stage and that we’re investing your donations in the best possible way. We have an International Advisory Board of world-renowned dementia experts to provide us with insight and advice on what’s happening in dementia research worldwide.
