RAD-ARUK Fellowship Programme

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

Race Against Dementia has so far invested £2 million in new funding administered in partnership through Alzheimer’s Research UK, to support early-career dementia scientists.

Grants of up to £500,000 are available for a duration of up to 5 years.

In 2019 we appointed three Race Against Dementia Fellows in partnership with Alzheimer’s Research UK.  We have now ring-fenced funds with ARUK to appoint more.

Applications are now open with a deadline of January 20th 2021.

The objectives of the RAD Fellowship Scheme are:

  • To attract outstanding early-career scientists to the field of dementia research
  • To accelerate progress towards research breakthroughs through innovative and ambitious research projects.
  • To provide these future leaders of dementia research with a unique package of flexible funding and developmental opportunities to fast-track their progress towards becoming independent research scientists.
  • To facilitate diverse secondments that foster interdisciplinary and inter-institutional interactions on a global scale.
