This position is based in the UK DRI Care Research and Technology at Imperial College London, which has been established to address a medical research area of highest importance and future impact as one of seven new national centres of excellence embedded in major UK universities. Together the centres will transform the diagnosis, treatment, and care of people with dementia. The MRC, alongside charity partners Alzheimer's Society and Alzheimer's Research UK, have invested £250m in fulfilment of the ambition identified in the Prime Minister's 2020 Challenge on Dementia.
