A new centre of excellence has been launched by the Institute of Mental Health seeking to transform our understanding of dementia.
The Centre for Dementia will focus on dementia as a pathway or a journey, which typically lasts for several years from first onset to end-of-life. All the points along the journey need to be better understood – with great potential for research in many fields.
The Centre for Dementia was formally launched during Dementia Awareness Week on Tuesday 20 May at the Institute of Mental Health on The University of Nottingham's Jubilee Campus.
