Through research we’ll bring about breakthroughs that will change lives, but scientists need your help.

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

My wife Valli and I have been busy and we’ve remained active, especially since I was diagnosed. I’ve spent whole days at the local hospital being involved in lots of research and clinical tests. I want to be as useful as I can for as long as I can.

Alzheimer's Research UK's research into dementia with Lewy bodies

Alzheimer’s Research UK has funded more than £7.5 million of pioneering research into dementia with Lewy bodies. We’ve funded a further £25.3 million of research into finding new ways to detect and diagnose dementia. Accurate and early diagnosis is crucial to delivering effective treatments to people affected.

Projects like these enable us to understand more about dementia, and to develop new diagnosis methods and treatments. You can find out more about these projects and our other funded research below.

With your support, we will fund many more studies into dementia with Lewy bodies. We promise we will not stop until dementia can no longer destroy lives.

We are Alzheimer’s Research UK.

We exist for a cure.
