Accelerating translation for dementia research

TRANSLATION 2024 is a two-day conference from 18th to 19th April bringing together leading researchers to discuss the latest discoveries and innovations in dementia research. There are exciting developments in biomarkers, in trials delivery and big data – all of which can lead to new disease-modifying treatments for dementia. This year Translation 2024 will reflect the changing landscape of dementia research.

250 delegates, from academia, industry, the third sector and government will be attending the conference. For Early Career Researchers e are holding an ECR morning ahead of the main programme, which will focus on tips and other valuable information to help with their research. 

At the heart of dementia research is a challenge: translating discoveries in the lab into experimental trials and onwards to therapies and new drugs quickly, at scale, using all available research channels. 

TRANSLATION 2024 will be at The Congress Centre, Great Russell Street, London on 18-19 April 2024.

There will be lots more news to share about the event in the coming weeks and months.
