We support research in regenerative medicine and the development of stem cell therapies directed to developing future cellular repair treatments that can lead to functional recovery for future generations of patients afflicted by Alzheimer's disease.
All research grant applications are subject to full peer review.
Recent Alzheimer's Research Charity research grants have been awarded to :
  • 2015. Professor Anne Rosser, Cardiff University, for a project entitled "Evaluation of novel stem cell technologies for application to the neurodegeneration of Alzheimer's disease".
  • 2017. Professor Meng Li and Anne Rosser, Cardiff University for a project entitled "Developing stem cell technologies for the neurodegeneration of Alzheimer's disease: assessing the capacity of Embryonic stem cell-derived projection neurons and interneurons to integrate in adult cortex".
  • 2019. Anne Rosser, Sophie Rowlands and Oliver Barclay. Cardiff University for a project entitled "Maintaining authentic human fetal neural tissue identity in vitro".
  • 2023. Anne-Marie McGorrian, Sophie Rowlands and Rachel Hills. Cardiff University for a project on human fetal tissue collection and the analysis of striatal and cortical development for application in stem cell-based therapies of human neurodegenerative disease (under review).
​We support travel grants for junior scientists and the invitation of speakers promoting Alzheimer's disease research at international meetings on the themes of brain repair and neuronal restoration.
