About the SDRC


The SDRC is a network of researchers, policy makers and people living with dementia. Not only does the SDRC aim to improve dementia prevention, diagnosis and treatment in the future, but we also support researchers that help the lives of those living with dementia today.  There are five areas of focus in the SDRC, known as themes. These cover all aspects of dementia research across Scotland. Find out more about these themes by clicking here.

The SDRC’s objectives are to:

  • Bring together Scottish-based dementia researchers of all research interests and backgrounds
  • Promote collaboration and co-ordination between researchers and enable a pooling of talent and skill
  • Support partners within the SDRC to increase the level of national and international research funding
  • Keep the public informed about the world-class dementia research taking place across Scotland
  • Work with the Scottish Government to help improve dementia services
  • Represent Scotland’s dementia research interests at national, UK, European and worldwide level
  • Ensure that the voice and views of people with dementia and their loved ones are central to all that we do
