Dementia Research Centre


Dementia Research Centre

The UCL Dementia Research Centre is a hub for patient-centred research into dementias. As well as clinical studies and trials in Alzheimer’s disease and other common causes of dementia, we have particular expertise in young-onset, inherited and unusual dementias. Our work focuses on identifying and understanding the disease processes that cause dementia, the factors that influence these disease processes, ways to improve diagnosis and treatments, and how best to support people with dementia and their families. Our research is closely integrated with the NHS Cognitive Disorders Service we run at The National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery.


COVID-19 update: Please note if you have an appointment for our cognitive clinic some of these appointments are currently being undertaken by telephone or Zoom call. We will try to telephone you as close to your appointment as possible but this may be some time earlier or later as there can be delays or difficulties in getting through. Please do not physically attend the hospital for your clinic appointment unless you are specifically asked to do so. Thank you for your understanding. For more information, please visit our Cognitive Clinics page.
