We are delighted to be supporting Alzheimer’s Research Society as our charity of the year in 2017



Dementia is one of our greatest medical challenges. Caused by brain diseases such as Alzheimer’s, the condition affects over 850,000 people in the UK, causing untold heartache to families across the country. Currently there are no available treatments to stop or slow the diseases that drive dementia, but with the BioIndustry Association’s help, Alzheimer’s Research UK is working to change this.


As the country’s leading dementia research charity, Alzheimer’s Research UK is relentless in its mission to defeat dementia. The charity powers world-class studies with the best chance of beating dementia sooner, focusing on prevention, treatment and improved diagnosis. It works to improve awareness and understanding about dementia, helping to remove stigma and fight misunderstanding about the condition. And through its campaigning, the charity works to keep dementia research on the political agenda, helping policymakers to understand how to support the UK’s dementia scientists.
