Backed by our passionate scientists and supporters, we fund and deliver pioneering research to revolutionise the way we treat, diagnose and prevent dementia.
As the UK’s leading dementia research charity we’ve invested in more than 1,000 projects since 1998. Your support has allowed us to fund thousands of dementia researchers based across the UK and the world.
We fund research into Alzheimer’s disease, dementia with Lewy bodies, vascular dementia and frontotemporal dementia, as well as some of the rarer causes. This work fits into three themes that will drive us towards a cure - treat, diagnose and prevent.
From people to pipettes and from Aberdeen to Exeter, our funding is making a huge difference. You can read more about some of the research we currently fund below.
