UCL Campaign


Tackling the global epidemic of dementia

Our vision is to be the leading translational neuroscience centre in the world; the number one student destination for education programmes embedded in translational neuroscience; and the centre connecting industry, commercial partners, academics and patients in order to accelerate translational research.

To do this, UCL is building a new, cutting-edge, translational neuroscience facility which will enable us to advance the understanding of ways to diagnose, prevent and treat neurological dseases. The £249 million building will contain both the UCL Institute of Neurology and the UK Dementia Research Institute, and will be a flagship component in one of the most coordinated and comprehensive neuroscience campuses in the world.
