People diagnosed with Alzheimer's and other types of dementia can take part in research studies.

People with and without dementia, as well as carers, have a vital role to play in helping scientists understand more about diseases like Alzheimer's, and to test new treatments, therapies and methods of diagnosis.

You can register to find out which research studies you may be suitable to take part in via Join Dementia Research.

We are proud to be doing our bit to support dementia research. Frank is on a drug trial and I’ve taken part in studies as a healthy volunteer through Join Dementia Research.

Through the research we fund into the causes of Alzheimer’s, our scientists are building a detailed picture of what happens in the brain in the disease. This is essential for improving diagnosis and developing new treatments to stop it.

We believe that only research can bring about life-changing treatments, and ultimately, a cure for Alzheimer’s. Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, we continue to support scientists who will take us one step closer to a breakthrough.

A cure would help others not to have the fears that I've had and live longer, happier and fulfilled lives. I think that the work that is being done to investigate any new treatments is amazing and I'd support it 100%.
