Any research breakthrough in the fight against dementia begins as a bright spark in the mind of a scientist. We cultivate ideas by funding the grant applications that turn theories into practical work. We have to reject many promising applications due to lack of funds, so how do we decide what to fund?
Our Scientific Advisory Board is the answer. This distinguished group of some of the world’s leading dementia research experts reviews the applications we receive before making recommendations to our Trustees.
Working at the forefront of dementia research, members of our Scientific Advisory Board generously give their time to ensure that work funded by Alzheimer’s Research UK is cost-effective and offers the best hope of making progress towards a cure, treatment or prevention for dementia.
