Our Research Conference is an opportunity to celebrate excellence from researchers at all stages of their careers.

David Hague Early Career Investigator of the Year Award

The David Hague Early Career Investigator of the Year Award, worth £25,000 in research expenses with a £1,500 personal prize, is presented each year to the most outstanding early career researcher in the field of biomedical dementia research with 5-10 years’ experience post-PhD.

Jean Corsan Prize

The Jean Corsan Prize is awarded each year for the best scientific paper in neurodegeneration published by a PhD or MD/PhD student. This prestigious £2,500 prize is supported by the Jean Corsan Foundation.

The paper must be based on medical research into Alzheimer’s, dementia and/or similar conditions and the student must be registered at a UK university. The winner will be invited to give a presentation at the Research Conference, and registration fees will be included.

Entrants may nominate themselves. If the nominee is not the publication’s first author, additional text of less than 100 words explaining the nominee’s contribution to the publication must also be attached.

Applications are now open. 

Laura Pulford Prize

The £250 Laura Pulford Prize will be awarded to the PhD student who gives the best presentation at the Early Careers Day of the Conference. This award is in memory of Laura Pulford, an Alzheimer’s Research UK-funded PhD student who was always keen to share her passion for science through public engagement, speaking with flair and enthusiasm for her research.

Applications will be open soon.
