Alzheimer’s Research UK is the UK’s leading dementia research charity. The charity powers world class studies that give the best chance of beating dementia sooner. Its scientists’ ground breaking work focuses on prevention, treatment and cure. Because Alzheimer’s Research UK receives no government funding, the charity is completely dependent on the generosity of supporters to fund its research programme.
In the UK more than 850,000 people are currently living with dementia. Worldwide the figure stands at more than 44 million. There are no treatments to stop the diseases that cause dementia. While some treatments can help people to live with their symptoms a little better, there are no treatments that slow or stop diseases like Alzheimer’s.
Alzheimer’s Research UK is leading the fightback by supporting dementia research projects worth over £33 million in leading Universities across the UK.
