Race Against Dementia was established by Sir Jackie Stewart, OBE following his wife‘s diagnosis of frontotemporal dementia. Sir Jackie was horrified to discover that there is currently no cure for dementia, a disease which devastates the lives of so many families.
Over 55 million people worldwide now live with dementia. Unless something is done to prevent or cure this dreadful disease, one in three people born today will die with dementia. Every three seconds someone is diagnosed with dementia.
THIS CRISIS CANNOT CONTINUE.
RAD supports early career researchers in many different aspects of dementia research. There are currently RAD Fellows and RAD Associates, based in the UK, Australia, the US, Europe and South Africa.
Each of these scientists is part of the RAD Fellowship Programme which gives them a range of skills training aimed at encouraging them to think outside the box and become leaders in their respective fields. RAD wants to accelerate work in this field and drive significant breakthroughs in dementia research.
Your donation will help fund ground breaking global research into new dementia treatments and preventions.
