Dr Susan Kohlhaas has joined Alzheimer’s Research UK as our new Director of Research.
Alzheimer’s Research UK’s Chief Medical Officer will help shape our emerging priority areas, including the development of new tools to improve the very early identification of diseases and ensuring swift access to any new life-changing treatments within the NHS.
To accelerate progress towards life-changing treatments, we must also change the conversation about dementia.
This International Volunteer Managers’ Day (5 November) we speak to Kyle Lockhart, Regional Fundraising Officer for Scotland, to find out his experience of recruiting and supporting our volunteers.
Sunday 5 November is International Volunteer Managers Day and here at Alzheimer’s Research UK, we’re celebrating the valuable support our volunteer managers give to all our amazing volunteers who really do make a difference.
Dr Carol Routledge has recently joined Alzheimer’s Research UK as our new Director of Research. What experience does she bring to the charity and what does she see in the future for Alzheimer’s Research UK? We caught up with Carol as she begins her new role.
Dementia steals people’s lives, turns their relationships upside down, destroys their hopes and dreams. We owe it to them, their families and their carers to find a solution. That is why I launched the Prime Minister’s Dementia Challenge in 2012. And that is why today I am joining Alzheimer’s Research UK as the charity’s President, so that I can continue the work I began in government focusing on this life-shattering illness.
Dr David Reynolds joins Alzheimer’s Research UK in June as our new Chief Scientific Officer. What experience does David bring to the charity and how does he view the task ahead? We spoke to David as he takes up his new role.
It’s a common misconception that dementia is all about Alzheimer’s and that it’s all about memory loss.
