Blood tests could revolutionise how dementia is diagnosed, making diagnosis earlier, more accessible and accurate.

Scientists have been looking for simpler and more reliable ways to find out when someone’s brain is changing due to dementia. They have searched for biomarkers – biological clues that we can find outside the brain (like in blood) that tells us the brain is changing.

At this event, we heard from researchers working to improve how dementia is diagnosed. Dr Maura Malpetti and Dr Ashvini Keshavan discussed the progress they are making, and the improvements their research could bring for people affected by dementia.
