Dementia is the one of the world’s greatest medical challenges. Affecting nearly one million people in the UK and 50m around the world, the condition has a greater economic impact in the UK than heart disease and cancer combined. Sadly, today, there are no treatments to slow or stop the diseases that cause dementia and behind every statistic is an individual who will not survive their diagnosis and a family struggling to support them.
Alzheimer’s Research UK exists to change this, by providing hope through research. As Europe’s leading dementia research charity, they have a razor-sharp focus on powering pioneering research into the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of dementia, and challenge enduring stigmas about the condition through thought-provoking awareness campaigns.
As the fastest growing medical charity in the UK, Alzheimer’s Research UK are relentless in their mission to help bring about a life-changing treatment for dementia by 2025.
