Dementia Research

Dementia research is an area of increasingly strong interest at the University, with a diverse range of research groups. The ongoing research is complemented with public events featuring renowned external speakers

Dementia is a major societal concern and the number of dementia patients is expected to rise in the next few decades, given the increasingly longer life expectancy. Research into the causes, the underlying neurobiology, diagnosis and treatment of dementia is important towards more effective treatments in the future.

Dementia research is a subject of increasingly strong interest at the University. Starting from July 2023, UCLan has organised a range of public events. These events have a specific purpose: to unite individuals from the general public who have an interest in dementia research, UCLan researchers, and esteemed guest speakers. The first of these events took place on 21 July. To find out more, please read the dementia research news article. For further information, please email Dr Vassilis Beglopoulos, Lecturer in Neuroscience at UCLan.
