Alzheimer’s Research UK has funded more than £17.4 million of pioneering research to help advance our understanding of dementia with Lewy bodies.

The research we are funding is looking at the alpha-synuclein protein and other proteins involved in the disease. This is building a clearer picture of why and how these proteins build up and affect the brain.

Our scientists are also working to develop new and innovative ways to detect DLB, and to identify targets for the development of new treatments.

Backed by our passionate scientists and supporters, we’re challenging the way people think about dementia, bringing together the people and organisations who can speed up progress, and investing in research to make breakthroughs possible.
