Early career researchers

Alzheimer’s Society is dedicated to ensuring that our researchers are supported throughout their careers. Our Dementia Research Leaders programme provides funding and development opportunities for people from biomedical, clinical and social science backgrounds from the start of a career in research through to establishing themselves as independent investigators.

What is a Dementia Research Leader?

The Dementia Research Leaders are our funded researchers who have the skill, drive and potential to be the leading voices and experts in dementia research in the future.

The programme covers people funded by Alzheimer’s Society who are named Undergraduate Research Bursary or PhD students and our junior, senior and clinical fellows. The programme also supports postdoctoral researchers supported by our Project or Programme grants.
