Dementia lab

There's more to a modern dementia laboratory than scientists in white coats tapping test tubes and peering down microscopes.

So that we can unlock the secrets of the diseases that cause dementia as soon as possible, researchers use a variety of techniques and take a number of different approaches to have the greatest chance of success.

To help you understand all the different kinds of research going on and why they are so important, why not take a tour of our virtual dementia lab. Travel through the different areas of the lab to find out what goes on behind-the-scenes as researchers work to tackle diseases like Alzheimer’s and frontotemporal dementia.
