Research in the Department

Student in laboratoryMembers of the Department’s team carry out biological and clinical research that we believe will have important impact upon our understanding of dementia and other mental illnesses that affect older people and lead to the development of better treatments. We do this by working in close collaboration with the IoP’s Department of Neuroscience, MRC Centre for Neurodegeneration and Biomedical Research Centre for Mental Health.
 
Our research into the basic biology of Alzheimer’s disease, the clinical features and aetiology of psychosis in later life and the conduct of randomised controlled trials is internationally regarded. We have a particular commitment to the conduct of high quality independent clinical trials because the results of these can impact positively upon the availability of effective treatments.
 
Sharing the results of our work with people who volunteer to take part in research and the public is a high priority for the Department, which has organised Open Days for Alzheimer’s disease research participants, their families and carers.
