Alzheimer’s Research UK has funded over £10 million of pioneering research to help advance our understanding of PCA.
Alzheimer’s Research UK was one of the first charities to invest consistently in this important area of research. Our studies are helping to improve diagnosis and work towards potential 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.

Using stem cells and specialised chambers to unravel dementia
Researchers at the University of Manchester are using sophisticated chambers to monitor how toxic proteins spread in dementia and the complex relationship between brain cells and their blood supply.
Using brain scans to investigate changes in the brain over time
Prof Nick Fox and Prof Jon Schott are studying brain scans to investigate changes in the brain over time in a longitudinal amyloid-PET/MRI study of the 1946 birth cohort.
Treating hearing loss in people at a high risk of dementia
Researchers at the University College London are developing a pilot trial to ensure people with hearing loss and mild cognitive dementia start and continue to use hearing aids. They will follow-up to evaluate its effectiveness in reducing the risk of dementia.
Memory problems in a visual form of dementia
A researcher from the University of Oxford is looking at the causes and consequences of a rare form of dementia.
