Times are challenging for everyone at the moment and our dementia researchers are no exception, so now more than ever it’s important to celebrate our scientists’ successes.
Microscopic images reveal the hidden beauty around and within us. Dementia researchers get a unique view of the intricate but stunning workings of the brain. To showcase the fascinating insights being gained in dementia research, we ran our Science Image Competition again this year.
Research is making progress, and the last 12 months have seen a number of important new developments in the global effort to overcome dementia.
Unbeknown to most, the common fruit fly is an invaluable research tool; many scientific discoveries would have been impossible without it!
Taking the time to watch the video will help many people to better understand the nature of diseases like Alzheimer’s, but by sharing it, the impact grows, and more and more people will get this important message.
To accelerate progress towards life-changing treatments, we must also change the conversation about dementia.
With our survey, developed with academics from the University of Edinburgh, we aim to gather opinions from as many people as possible. This will help us to pick out trends in opinion, and learn whether different groups of people tend to value different things.
Our Insight 46 study is a unique opportunity to study how factors throughout our life could influence our brain health aged 70.
