Alzheimer’s Research UK has funded over £66.4 million of pioneering research into Alzheimer’s disease.

People diagnosed with Alzheimer's, and other types of dementia can take part in research studies. People living with dementia have a vital role to play in helping scientists undertsand more about diseases like Alzheimer's, and to test new treatments, therapies and methods of diagnosis. You can register to find our which research studies you may be suitable to take part in via 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.
