New dementia research sites to be opened across the UK

The Dementia Translational Collaboration Trials Network, an initiative run by The National Institute for Health and Care Research (NIHR), has received £49.9 million in government funding to set up new dementia research sites across the UK to enable more people to take part in early phase clinical trials.  

The Dementia Translational Collaboration Trials Network will have four key aims: 

  1. Accelerate set up and regulatory processes for dementia trials. 
  2. Increase industry engagement for early phase dementia trials. 
  3. Enhance recruitment, support and diversity in dementia trials. 
  4. Increase capacity and expertise for early phase dementia trials, thereby increasing the number of people with dementia in the UK who can participate.

Later this year there will be an open, transparent application process for selecting where and when the new research sites will open.
