A world where research conquers dementia.

A joint £290 million investment into dementia research led by the Medical Research Council with the Alzheimer’s Society and Alzheimer’s Research UK.

A new case of dementia is diagnosed somewhere in the world every 4 seconds, and by 2030 it is estimated that there will be approximately 75 million people with dementia.
