National Institute for Health Research

Funds for health and care research are generously awarded by the NIHR which also translates discoveries into practical products, treatments, devices and procedures, involving patients and the public in all our work.

An important aim is to ensure the NHS is able to support the research of other funders to encourage broader investment in, and economic growth from, health research.

We work with charities and the life sciences industry to help patients gain earlier access to breakthrough treatments and we train and develop researchers to keep the nation at the forefront of international research.

Join Dementia Research

This national service allows people to register their interest and be matched with suitable studies.

Dementia is a big challenge; the number of people with Alzheimer's disease, vascular dementia, and other types of dementia, is set to double over the next 30 years.

It is only through research that we can understand what causes the disease, develop effective treatments, improve care and hopefully one day find a cure.

But for research to progress we need more people to take part in more studies. Our knowledge of dementia currently falls behind that of other major conditions, such as cancer or heart disease. We have to close this gap.
