What is #MadeAtUCL?
#MadeAtUCL is a new campaign which aims to bring to life University College London’s (UCL) impact on people, lives and communities, mainly through ground-breaking research and discoveries.
The UCL community nominated hundreds of stories about the everyday ways that the university’s work has touched people’s lives, whether through health, technology, culture, environment, community, justice or equality.
These stories underwent a selection process involving university staff and members of the public.
The overall winners are being decided by a public vote, and we need your help.
Do we deserve your vote?
Around 40% of research studies fail to find enough participants, or over-run due to delays in recruitment.
Join Dementia Research and our volunteers are fighting for a better future, helping ensure that research studies looking at dementia prevention, diagnosis, care and treatments are able to recruit and deliver more quickly.
This means that everyone can learn and benefit from the knowledge gained, saving money to ensure more can be reinvested in extra research.
So far over 42,000 people have registered with Join Dementia Research, supporting over 1,000 researchers and over 400 research studies across the UK.
As a result, researchers have undertaken over 100,000 volunteer screenings and found more than 20,000 people to participate in their studies.
We would be very grateful for your vote – this will help continue to raise the profile of dementia and research, and help more people to take part.
