Centre for Dementia Prevention
Welcome to the University of Edinburgh’s Centre for Dementia Prevention, which combines research in science, medicine and social sciences to lead global efforts in preventing dementia.
**UPDATE: This website is moving to www.edp.ed.ac.uk and will be closed shortly.**
At our heart is a vision to bring together researchers, policy makers and members of the public, to achieve three goals:
- To advance understanding of biomarkers in clinical and preclinical human populations
- To drive global efforts to deliver new medicines that could act before clinical symptoms of dementia appear
- To improve the experience of living with dementia by developing strategies that increase quality of life
We seek to empower people to understand and protect their brain health, for a future without dementia.
