All applications for Alzheimer's Society funding are reviewed by our Research Network of approximately 280 carers, former carers and people with dementia.

Our Dementia Research Leaders programme

Alzheimer's Society offers a mentoring programme to our funded fellows, to help them obtain a permanent academic position.
Alzheimer's Society is funding eight Doctoral Training Centres across the UK to develop the next generation of Dementia Research Leaders.
