MRC awards £4.3m to boost UK research base in dementia

Six universities have been awarded a total of £4.3m by the MRC to grow and develop the UK’s research base in dementia science.

The Momentum awards, designed to support the UK Dementia Research Institute (DRI), will help open new research avenues which could transform the potential of dementia research in the UK. The awards represent the first steps in establishing the capabilities for the DRI, which is being funded through a combined investment of £250m from the MRC and founding charity partners, the Alzheimer’s Society and Alzheimer’s Research UK. The DRI is expected to be up and running by 2019.
