Dementias Platform

In June, the Prime Minister announced the creation of the UK Dementias Research Platform, which will be the world’s largest study group for dementia research.

This £16 million programme (including £4 million industry partnership funding) has been developed and will be led by the Medical Research Council. It aims to accelerate progress in dementia research, in particular research into the early detection, improved treatment and prevention of the condition.  Two million people are available to take part.
