There are currently 750,000 people diagnosed with dementia in Britain today which is estimated to reach 1million by 2025. It costs the country £17 billion per year to look after these people which is more than people with cancer and heart disease combined.
This lecture by Professor Simon Lovestone will show how current research in dementia holds great promise both in trying to understand the mechanisms to find new treatments and in researching biomarkers to help identify the condition at an earlier stage.
This lecture is sponsored by GSK.
