JDR_cmykJoin dementia research is a new service, funded by the Department of Health, and run by the National Institute for Health Research in partnership with leading charities Alzheimer’s Research UK and Alzheimer’s Society.

It is the first national service to provide a simple and easy way to register your interest in taking part in dementia studies, connecting you with researchers who are working on local and national studies.


All this week, we will be publishing videos of interviews with researchers and volunteers. They are working together on the type of studies that are recruiting now through Join Dementia Research.

You’ll be able to see and hear what the professionals are looking for, and how they carry out the research. You’ll also be able to hear from people just like yourself, who have volunteered to take part in dementia research.

Check back every day this week to see our latest updates, and share them on social media with friends, family and colleagues.

You can sign up to Join Dementia Research quickly, easily and for free through our website. Why not help someone else subscribe as well? You and others can gain the satisfaction of taking part in important and rewarding research!
