What is dementia?
Dementia primarily affects cognitive function and memory, and affects around 850,000 people alive today, and every day around 600 further people develop the disease. is also known to be the leading cause of death in the UK. Right now, there is no cure – and, according to research undertaken by the charity, approximately 1 in 3 babies born in 2021 will develop dementia in their lifetime, making it essential that research is invested in as urgently as possible.

Alzheimer’s Research UK are striving towards a world without dementia, and focus on four central prongs of tackling the disease: a greater understanding of the diseases that cause dementia, an earlier and more accurate diagnosis for sufferers, and a reduced risk for those who face their diagnosis.

The next few years are essential for the team at Alzheimer’s Research UK. With their goal of introducing an effective and successful treatment for Alzheimer’s by 2025 imminent, the research team is working harder than ever to drive towards this goal.
