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.
