Alzheimer’s Society is delighted to announce that our website has been nominated for an award at the prestigious Association of Medical Research Charities’ (AMRC) Science Communication Awards 2011.

Alzheimer's Society is one of only three charities shortlisted for an award to recognise the quality of their website.

Research Communications Officer, Dr Jerome Boyd-Kirkup commented,

'It is a fantastic achievement to be shortlisted for an AMRC award against some tough competition. This reflects the dedication and hard work of the Alzheimer's Society's Research and New Media teams. We have always sought to ensure that our research is communicated in an accurate and engaging way. The website plays a crucial role in this.'
