There will be a full day of talks covering subjects including cellular and clinical research, managing dementia and cognition. There will also be poster sessions through the day with plenty of time for networking and an evening reception.

The keynote speaker will be Diane Hanger, Professor of Neuroscience at King’s College London who will talk on

“Using cell and animal models to uncover molecular mechanisms underlying dementia”.

Early Career Researchers are invited to join us for a post-conference social in the St John’s college bar, with special guests from MedComms, Editing and Industry who are there to chat and answer your questions about their career paths. We will also have free drinks available for ECR network members, including a special Moji-tau cocktail!

Attendance at the research day is free, but registration is required (see below).

Please download a poster to print and share

Members of other dementia research networks are welcome to attend, but priority will be given to local researchers.
