We believe in the power of research to change the future.

We fund a broad range of research projects to understand dementia and drive us towards better diagnosis, preventions and treatments. With your help we are making great progress.

We are the UK’s leading dementia research charity and have invested in over 1000 projects across all forms of dementia since 1998. Your support has allowed us to fund thousands of dementia researchers based in more than 100 institutions in the UK and around the world.

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.
