Launched in 2017, the UK Dementia Research Institute (UK DRI) is the single biggest investment the UK has ever made in dementia thanks to £290 million from founding funders the Medical Research Council (MRC), Alzheimer’s Society and Alzheimer’s Research UK.
Centred on the need for innovative, early-stage science to advance our understanding of how dementia develops and progresses, the UK DRI’s research aims to bring new therapies to people with dementia faster. The success of the UK DRI depends on the people in it. The institute is structured so that its researchers are connected, wherever their labs are based. Having seven centres located across the UK allows the institute to bring people together for shared scientific inspiration, whilst making the most of cutting-edge tools and infrastructure locally.
