Working with our Stakeholders

We have strong links with national charities. For dementia research, that includes Alzheimer's Research UK and Alzheimer's Society, and for neurodegeneration, we have links with Parkinson’s UK, the Huntington’s Disease Association and the Motor Neurone Disease Association.  These relationships facilitate patient involvement in research and provide important synergies with providing service excellence across the UK.  Several studies on the NIHR Clinical Research Network portfolio have been funded by these charities and, through the efforts of our Specialty Group, have recruited to time and target.

The specialty works closely with Dementias and Parkinson’s Disease Portfolio Development Groups and the Motor Neurone Disease and Huntington's Disease Clinical Studies Groups.


Research Councils and Funders

There are a number of research councils and other funders of dementia and neurodegeneration research with funding calls open right now.  The list below is not exhaustive but gives potential researchers a good idea of where to go to access funding for studies into these conditions.
