Welcome to Dementias Platform UK
Detection. Treatment. Prevention.
DPUK brings together the best scientific minds and global leaders in the pharmaceutical industry to find new ways of detecting, treating and preventing dementia.
Our data-driven platform gives scientists fast access to findings, technology and volunteers – powering research to stop dementia in its tracks.
The DPUK Data Portal gives researchers rapid, secure access to millions of health research records.
Our Trials Delivery Framework matches public volunteers to the right dementia studies.
Our Experimental Medicine Incubator accelerates and de-risks the development of new treatments.
A project led by researchers at Cardiff University is analysing data in the DPUK Data Portal to predict genetic risk of dementia, focusing on genes related to the brain's immune system.
Dr Ivan Koychev is senior clinical researcher at DPUK and leads our research volunteer registry. Dr Koychev is running a new clinical trial examining whether a drug used for the treatment of diabetes could also reduce the risk of Alzheimer's disease.
