Alzheimer’s Research UK is the UK’s leading dementia research charity. We are dedicated to diagnosis, prevention, treatment and cure. Backed by our passionate scientists and supporters, we fund and deliver pioneering research. We challenge the way people think about dementia and bring together the people and organisations who can speed up progress. Through research, we will make breakthroughs possible.
We are committed to supporting dementia researchers through a range of funding, collaboration, and career development opportunities.
In January 2022, we launched a new programme dedicated to early career researchers (ECRs). recognising that dementia researchers need to have the tools and opportunities to succeed in an environment where there is strong competition for funding and resources from other fields.
We are working to overcome barriers to long and productive careers in dementia research and to maintain momentum in professional pathways that are typically challenging and vulnerable to loss of talent. Building on our existing initiatives and strong links with the research community, Alzheimer’s Research UK is making a strategic effort to nurture and shape the research leaders of tomorrow.
Details of our ECR grant schemes, events and other opportunities are available through the Early Career Researcher Portal and here on the Dementia Researcher website. Visit our website to learn more about our research and how we support dementia researchers. You can follow us on Twitter @ARUKScientist or contact us at email@example.com
