The aim of research is to find out new knowledge that could lead to changes in treatment, policies and care. Research into dementia can be divided into three basic themes: cause, cure and prevention, and care.
Cause: Scientific, laboratory based research at the cellular level that will advance our understanding of dementia: its causes, its effects and its diagnosis.
Cure and prevention: Clinical research into treatment and management of dementia, involving testing of drugs, therapies, etc.
Care: Social science research which focuses on the best ways of caring for and supporting people with dementia, their partners and families.
Some of the organisations we partner with for research into dementia include:
