Dementias Platform UK

The Dementias Platform UK (DP UK) is a multi-million pound public-private partnership, developed and led by the Medical Research Council, to accelerate progress in, and open up, dementias research. The DPUK’s aims are early detection, improved treatment and ultimately, prevention, of dementias.

Richard Wade-Martins will play a key role in the Stem Cell Network within DPUK which will comprise co-ordinated programmes for the immortalisation of selected cell lines, high-throughput genome editing, and detailed cell phenotyping.  

Simon Lovestone and Clare MacKay play leading roles in DPUK and will lead on the DPUK national informatics program, to include imaging.
