When: Thursday 15 December 2022
Online (Zoom webinar)
7-8pm GMT

Join us this festive season to hear about the incredible progress made in dementia research in 2022.

Taking part in this stimulating discussion is our Chief Scientific Officer Prof James Rowe and Head of Research Dr Rosa Sancho. They will be joined by ambassador for Alzheimer’s Research UK, Scott Mitchell.

Together they will explore three key topics:

  • The progress made in dementia research in 2022 and looking ahead to 2023.
  • New dementia treatments on the horizon, including the latest news surrounding lecanemab.
  • The importance of growing awareness of dementia in government and with politicians.

Attendees will have the opportunity to submit questions, both ahead of the event and during it.

The event will take place online on Zoom, and it is free to attend. It is open to everyone, and no previous knowledge of dementia or research is required. We will be recording the event so you can watch it back on demand if you can’t make it live on the night.
