People diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia 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 frontotemporal dementia, 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.

Getting involved in research gives you the confidence to take direction, where you know it's actually going to bring meaningful results. We can't find a cure without research. And I think that is so critical.

Alzheimer’s Research UK has funded more than £15 million of pioneering research to help advance our understanding of frontotemporal dementia.

This includes over £15 million into over 160 research projects into frontotemporal dementia. You can find more details about the studies we're funding below.


We need to keep putting money into research. We need to keep the focus on finding treatments and therapies.
