Case studies and experimental medicine
The ambition of DPUK is to bring multidisciplinary teams together in collaborations that produce groundbreaking research. By working together, industry, health technology experts, data analysts, and dementia researchers are able to innovate dementia studies.
By working together DPUK's research networks have broken down traditional barriers and nurtured new talent and opportunities. One partnership is investigating repurposing of the drug libraries of AstraZeneca (AZ) for patient-specific cell models.
Another collaboration has created the world's first national brain imaging network capable of aligning results from different imaging centres. Such technological expertise allows researchers to investigate the early causes of degenerative brain disease - before symptoms show.
