What we do

Alzheimer’s Research UK is the UK’s leading dementia research charity.

As research experts, we specialise in funding world-class, pioneering research at leading universities to find preventions, treatments and a cure for dementia. We believe science and innovation hold the key to defeating dementia and invest in the scientists discovering more about the condition and its causes.

Find out about the scale of our dementia challenge in the UK, and how research is only hope for answers, in our short animation.

Our findings improve the lives of everyone affected by dementia now and in the future. We forge partnerships with Government and other key organisations to make dementia research a national priority. We encourage everyone to join us in supporting research and achieving a world free from dementia.
