Backed by our passionate scientists and supporters, we fund and deliver pioneering research, to understand dementia and drive us towards better diagnosis, preventions and treatments.
As the UK’s leading dementia research charity and we’ve invested in over 1000 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 four themes that will drive us towards life-changing breakthroughs – understand, diagnose, reduce risk and treat.
Use the buttons below to see what research is happening under each theme.
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.
