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.


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.
