Alzheimer’s Research UK has funded over £12.6 million of pioneering research to help advance our understanding of different types of frontotemporal dementia.

Our research is gaining new insights into the proteins that build up in the brain and how these damage nerve cells as well as taking these discoveries into drug discovery programmes to develop new treatments.

We have now funded over £64 million of pioneering research to help advance the understanding of all types of dementia, discovering new ways to diagnose, prevent and treat the diseases that cause dementia. Backed by our passionate scientists and supporters, we’re challenging the way people think about dementia, and investing in research to make breakthroughs possible.
