We're here for all dementia research in Scotland
The Scottish Dementia Research Consortium celebrates and supports all dementia research taking place across the country. We are a membership organisation including researchers, healthcare professionals, people living with dementia and anyone else with an interest in research.
The SDRC with the DHI are organising a workshop designed to share ideas and promote innovation around technologies for brain health and dementia prevention
Read our latest report from the SDRC, which gives an update on what we’ve been up to as well as an overview of brain health and dementia research activity in the past 12 months
What do the SDRC do?
The purpose of the SDRC is to provide support for dementia research across Scotland. We do this by celebrating and championing the work already ongoing as well as nurturing growth. We also promote collaboration by encouraging researchers within and across institutions and disciplines to work together, and to help them gain a better understanding of each other’s work.
The following are some examples of what we do for our members:
- Organising events for researchers to learn from each other and network.
- Producing blogs featuring researchers who discuss their work and share experiences. We also have our own Twitter account (make sure to follow us!)
- Conducting our own research and produce publications which delve into the dementia and brain health research landscape in Scotland
- Support researchers, particularly early career researchers by providing personal and professional development opportunities.
How can I be a part of the SDRC?
The Scottish Dementia Research Consortium is the biggest network of brain health and dementia research in Scotland.
We are community of over 600 members. We work together to bring research into practice and also to improve the quality of life for people with dementia and those who care for them.
