Thames Valley Alzhiemer's Research UK Network Centre Organising Committee
Sadly, due to the coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic, we were unable to hold the 2020 Alzheimer's Research UK Thames Valley Network Dementia Open Morning.
However, over the summer we arranged for the presenters within the network centre who were due to talk at the March public event to give their talks online.
The short talks from scientists were recorded and include a range of topics in dementia. They are available to watch here.
We hope you find the videos informative.
In light of the coronavirus COVID-19 situation, it is with regret that we have decided to cancel this years’ Alzheimer’s Research UK Thames Valley Research Day which was due to take place on Monday 29 June 2020 at St Anne's College, Oxford.
We will return in 2021 and we very much hope to see you there!

The Alzheimer’s Research UK Early Careers Network is a group of researchers at various stages in their careers who meet for social and career related events. If you are an early careers researcher (post-doc, PhD or undergraduate level) in neurodegeneration or dementia, or have an interest in these research themes, then you can join the Alzheimer’s Research UK Early Careers Network. To join or find out more, email the Early Career Representatives (Francesco Tamagnini, Nora Bengoa-Vergniory and Franziska Guenther) stating your career stage and research interest.
The Dementia Researcher website - has been developed by the office of the National Director for Dementia Research with support from Alzheimer's Research UK, Alzheimer's Society and the Medical Research Council - provides a variety of support and resources for early career researchers – covering everything from jobs and funding opportunities, how to produce grant proposals, opportunities to ‘ask a dementia expert’, and a range of podcasts.
