Lab Notes is our series of online engagement events where you can find out about the life-changing dementia research taking place across the UK.

These regular events will give you the chance to delve deeper into our work. You’ll hear about a different topic at each event, with the chance to put your questions to the scientists in our live Q&A.

When: Tuesday 25 April 2023
Where: Online (Zoom webinar)
Time: 4-5pm BST

Find out about the research taking place at the UK’s specially-created Drug Discovery Alliance, which brings together world-leading dementia scientists from the Universities of Oxford, Cambridge and University College London.

Each institution houses dedicated biology and chemistry teams to evaluate promising new drug targets. Together, the Drug Discovery Institutes are exploring a wide range of disease mechanisms spanning the full spectrum of dementias.

Fiona and Paul will talk to us about the Drug Discovery Institutions, and share some of the exciting projects taking place.

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.
