Dementia research is underfunded when compared to the huge economic cost of the condition. This underfunding means that there are relatively few researchers working in the field of dementia. Alzheimer's Society is dedicated to addressing this shortage through our Dementia Research Leaders programme.
The programme focuses on finding and keeping the best research talent in the field of dementia. It is aimed at researchers across various career stages, from undergraduates through to senior and clinical fellows. It is also an essential part of our vision to provide better care for dementia today and ultimately a cure for tomorrow.
