As the UK’s leading dementia research charity, Alzheimer’s Research UK has funded over £24 million of studies investigating the diagnosis of diseases that cause dementia.
Through the research we fund, our scientists are building a detailed understanding of what happens in the brain and how these changes can be detected. This is essential for improving diagnosis and developing new ways to detect the diseases that cause dementia earlier than we currently can. To find out about the research we fund you can visit alzheimersresearchuk.org/research/researchprojects

People with and without dementia play an important role in dementia research. More people are needed to take part in vital studies to help scientists test new methods of diagnosis, treatment, and prevention. If you’re interested in taking part in research you can register to see which studies you can take part in via Join Dementia Research.
Early detection and prevention are part of the journey towards finding a cure. Without detection, we can’t intervene and prevent, or slow down the diseases that cause dementia.
Without detection a cure is ineffective. Without detection there is no cure.
We are Alzheimer’s Research UK.
We exist for a cure.
