We exist to beat dementia
Race against dementia international hub is collaborations with research centres of excellence worldwide


Collaborations with research centres of excellence worldwide

Forging strong alliances with research centres of excellence worldwide. Dementia is a global crisis, and a breakthrough could come from anywhere in the world. The international reach of Race Against Dementia can bring world class dementia researchers together from across the globe.

Race Against Dementia International Hubs are projects that enable cross-border collaboration. Race Against Dementia funds are used for research, equipment and talent. Projects are spearheaded by a professor working closely with an appointed Race Against Dementia Associate – a brilliant investigator who aligns with the Race Against Dementia vision of disruptive change and acceleration of progress. Race Against Dementia Associates, like all Race Against Dementia Fellows, are offered lessons in the Formula 1 mindset.

Current partnerships include the University of Edinburgh with the Alzheimer Center Amsterdam. The aim is that these created links will spark new ways of approaching the dementia challenge.
