As the Covid-19 crisis continues, the impact on dementia research grows. The strict social distancing measures mean that many of our researchers have been locked out of the laboratories. Others who work directly with patients are not able to continue their clinical research. Many clinical researchers who work to improve care for people with dementia are also clinicians or nurses. With the NHS under great strain many have had to join the fight against the virus. 

BRACE, along with other charities, has been hit hard by the crisis with a 60 per cent drop in income. We are increasingly having to turn down good research for lack of funds. 

To understand the real impact Covid-19 is having on dementia research please join our panel of experts from across the dementia disciplines.
