About the Conference

The 2020 Alzheimer’s Research UK Conference is heading to Wales.

Join us at the International Convention Centre (ICC) Wales, to hear the latest findings in dementia research at the UK’s largest dementia research conference.

Taking place on the 17-18 March 2020, our Conference is a fantastic chance to gain insights from basic researchers through to clinical colleagues. Last year the Conference attracted nearly 500 attendees and, as in previous years, we expect the meeting to fill up fast so book early to avoid disappointment!
