NIHR | National Institute for Health Research

World Alzheimer's Month

The NIHR is dedicated to funding and supporting world class research into dementia. Each week during World Alzheimer's Month we're focusing on a different theme around dementia research. There are a number of ways you can support our campaign - find out more.

We are the National Institute for Health Research. We fund health and care research and translate discoveries into practical products, treatments, devices and procedures, involving patients and the public in all our work.

We 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.
