Joining forces with other charities to fund groundbreaking research
In 2017/18 we joined forces with two other charities to expand the research we fund. Working with Fight for Sight, we committed funds to two year-long research projects to investigate the links between the eyes and Alzheimer’s disease in more depth.
And we teamed up with Action on Hearing Loss to co-fund research into the common biological mechanisms underlying hearing loss and dementia. Our call for applications resulted in several proposals for new research, with funding awards due to be announced later in the year.
