Helping you play your part in beating dementia

Every 3 minutes someone develops dementia in the UK, and for the first time, it is now the leading cause of death in England & Wales. And yet, five times fewer researchers choose to work in dementia than in cancer. To tackle this challenge head on, we need to support emerging talent. That’s where you come in.

Being an early career researcher can be incredibly rewarding and challenging too. It is as much about new discoveries, collaborations and ideas as it is about the pressure to publish papers and the competition for funding. So, we’ve put our heads together to create a website just for you. A place to go to when you need some inspiration or want to get advice from other early career researchers and leading experts.
