Policy on Supporting Research

The ASI is committed to supporting research that can accelerate finding new ways to diagnose and treat dementia effectively, that has relevance, meaning and impact on how people with dementia and their carers can live better quality lives, and that can potentially discover ways to prevent dementia.

For more information on our policy on supporting research, please click HERE 

Person Public Involvement (PPI)

There is now consensus that PPI represents best practice in research, and that PPI Contributors add significant value to projects. To facilitate best practice ASI have developed a Dementia Research Advisory Team which is a group of people with dementia and carers who wish to contribute to research in a PPI Capacity.
