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

We’re funding a unique Research Network of over 1,000 dementia researchers across 15 Centres in the UK – bringing together the best minds to make breakthroughs possible.

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.

From people to pipettes and from Aberdeen to Exeter, our funding is making a huge difference. Whether there is a particular cause close to your heart, or you want to find out more about the groundbreaking research taking place on your doorstep, our interactive map shows some of our current research projects.
