RAD-ARUK Fellowship Programme

In collaboration with Alzheimer's Research UK, the 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.

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, followed by a further four in 2021 totalling an investment of £3.5 million. You can read about our current Fellows here.

A third call for Fellowships is now open, application closing date has been extended to midday 5th September 2022. You can apply here.

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.
