Drug development initiatives
DPUK is a data resource for drug development
DPUK is one of several UK initiatives which contribute to drug development. The Dementia Research Institute, ARUK’s Drug Discovery Institutes, the Translational Research Centres for Dementia and the Join Dementia Research initiative operate in different stages of the drug development pipeline – from looking at the biology of the disease through to the identification of molecules with the potential to modify disease progression, and the trialling of new treatments in people. DPUK contributes at all of these stages.
