Cambridge Neuroscientists benefit from £192,000 charity funding boost from Alzheimer’s Research UK
Dementia scientists in Cambridge are set to gain from a big funding boost after Alzheimer’s Research UK committed a record amount of money to new research projects. The UK’s leading dementia research charity has pledged a further £5.5m investment in new projects, increasing its current commitment to research to over £20m. The announcement, which coincides with World Alzheimer’s Day (21 September), includes awards worth £192,112 for researchers at the University of Cambridge.
This announcement follows earlier reports this week that the world's leading pharmaceutical companies are downgrading the search for new treatments for Alzheimer's disease after the failure of a series of high-profile drugs trials. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-19653707
