This scheme aims to enable the retention of early career researchers in dementia research or to address particular pinch points in their career path.
The Inspire Fund provides funding for projects that engage the public with dementia and the life-changing research going on into the condition.
Race Against Dementia (RAD) Fellowships are designed to power outstanding early career scientists in their pursuit of innovative solutions to the big questions in dementia research.
The Pilot project scheme is meant for novel research ideas that if successful would lead to a Major project or programme application to Alzheimer’s Research UK or other funding body.
Clinical Research Training Fellowships are designed to help promising clinically qualified candidates gain the research experience and skills necessary to apply for advanced Fellowships.
The Major project grant scheme provides funds for intermediate to large scale research projects.
Senior Research Fellowships are designed to retain excellent clinical and non-clinical researchers who have a track record of nationally competitive research, and clear plans to manage their own independent research group and become internationally recognised within the field of biomedical dementia research.
Clinical Research Fellowships are designed for promising clinically qualified researchers who have delivered previous research projects with evidence of impactful outputs and have clear plans to establish their own research ‘niche’.
This scheme is for a full PhD programme; it does not cover funding gaps for students who have already started their studies.
The Dementia Consortium will provide funding, resources and expertise to both increase the number of, and capitalise upon, new drug targets emerging from across the academic sector that hold promise of bringing patient benefit.
