Dementia Consortium Roadshow

Find out more about how the Dementia Consortium can support you

The Dementia Consortium is a global initiative launched in 2013 to accelerate early stage target validation and drug discovery. By providing researchers with funding, drug discovery expertise and project management, the Consortium aims to capitalise on emerging targets in neurodegeneration. Through industrial partners, we aim to move  promising targets towards the clinic and share revenues with the originating scientists, with the ultimate goal of bringing benefit to people with dementia.

Earlier this year, the Dementia Consortium was renewed with new members Evotec and Johnson & Johnson joining, and up to £6 million made available for project funding over the next three years. Throughout the next year, we will be travelling around the UK to give you the opportunity to come and find out how the Dementia Consortium works, and how you could benefit from its collaborative funding.
