Alzheimer’s Research UK’s goal is to defeat dementia. To achieve that, we need to make strides in understanding the causes of dementia and in diagnosing it, while looking also at ways of preventing, treating and ultimately curing it.

We have now funded over 434 research projects across the UK with a value of over £43 million. Right now we are supporting 140 research projects worth over £20 million. All of this research is carried out in leading universities by top scientists.

Our expert Scientific Advisory Board assesses all applications for our funding, before they are sent for rigorous peer review. This expert guidance means that every grant we fund offers the best hope in helping us achieve our goal of defeating dementia. We only fund the very best.

As projects get underway, scientists provide us with regular detailed feedback on progress being made. Alzheimer’s Research UK’s groundbreaking research programme is recognised by our membership of the Association of Medical Research Charities.
