Launching the RAD-ARUK Research Fellowships

Posted on the 14th October 2018

Race Against Dementia is investing £2 million in a new research programme, supported by Alzheimer’s Research UK.

The Race Against Dementia Fellowships are designed to power outstanding early career scientists in their pursuit of innovative solutions to the big questions in dementia research.

With these new Research Fellowships, we want to attract the best new talent from every corner of the world and not only catalyse their research with funding, but to throw open the door to a whole range of opportunities that will support a can-do mindset and accelerate a new generation of scientists to beat this horrendous illness.

Each Fellowship provides for funds of up to £500,000 to cover salary and research costs, and including a generous allowance to allow international travel and secondment to facilitate global collaboration.

As well as financial backing, five-year Race Against Dementia Fellowships will provide unique opportunities for collaboration with world-leading dementia scientists and high-level mentoring from McLaren F1 and Red Bull Racing, both leading innovators in the world of Formula One.
