The Alzheimer’s Research UK Research Network is a unique, collaborative venture in the dementia research community.
First established in 1998, the Research Network now comprises of 15 Centres with a total of over 2,000 dementia researchers – both basic scientists and clinicians – around the UK.
About the Research Network
The Network is designed to support biomedical dementia research through the funding of collaborative science and networking to share findings and resources. The Network also serves to not only bring researchers into the dementia field but to disseminate research findings to the local community through annual Public Meetings.
How to get involved
The Alzheimer’s Research UK Research Network is open to all biomedical dementia researchers – from PhD students to tenured academics, basic scientists to clinicians. There are 15 Network Centres; some Centres are single institutions, others include researchers from geographically close academic institutions.
