In collaboration with Alzheimer’s Research UK, the Race Against Dementia Fellowships enable outstanding early career researchers to pursue innovative solutions to the big questions in dementia research. The scheme has been running since 2019.
Grants of up to £500,000 are available for a duration of up to five years, rather than the usual three-year fellowships often offered to early career researchers. RAD believes that a longer fellowship creates space for scientists to explore more innovative avenues of research without the pressure of needing to demonstrate quick results that would satisfy the next grant application in the third year.
Funding covers essential equipment, travel and research assistance. Collaboration outside the host institution is not only encouraged but are also financially supported. These could be international partnerships or collaborations with commercial partners.
Applications are made through the Alzheimer’s Research UK website.
