This team is working with the data collected by GPs and hospitals, looking to determine how this can help in scientists' understanding of brain diseases such as dementia.

Ethical legal and social issues

Ethical, legal and social issues in DPUK

Better methods Impact

As dementia research is evolving, and as so much of our work is a first for the sector, this team's work looks at the ethical issues arising from DPUK.

Making best use of donated brains in dementia research

This team has delved into all the issues surrounding brain donation – a crucial element of many studies into dementia.

Statistical methods to understand dementia risk

This group is developing statistical methods that will allow us to use DPUK cohort data, for example genetics and basic demographics, to differentiate those people who are more likely to develop dementia or deteriorate faster than others.

Biostatistics genetics

Studying the genetics associated with dementia

This team is developing state-of-the-art methods of predicting dementia risk by looking at the genetic data collected by long-term studies of health.
