We are recruiting new members for our Board of Trustees

Brains for Dementia Research (BDR) is a strategic initiative established in 2008 and funded by both Alzheimer’s Research UK (ARUK) and Alzheimer’s Society (AS). Collectively these two charities are represented through the funding organisation, Alzheimer’s Brain Bank UK (ABBUK).

The Alzheimer’s Brain Bank UK is seeking new members for its Board of Trustees. As a member, you will have the opportunity to contribute to the development and implementation of the mission, vision, and goals of the Brains for Dementia Research initiative.

We are looking for new Board members to bring different perspectives, evaluate options and contribute to the development of evidence-driven strategies and solutions, and with at least one of the following attributes:

  • Interest in dementia and dementia research.
  • Experience of pharma, biotech or diagnostics, preferably in neuroscience and with additional experience of academic-industry interactions/collaborations (that could help build upon collaboration with industry and industry interest in accessing BDR resources).
  • Marketing and communication skills, particularly within life sciences or research (to support the communication strategy and highlight opportunities for improving the visibility of BDR).
  • Experience in data sharing or data collaboration (that could provide valuable knowledge when building academic and/or industry partnerships with the UK and abroad).

We welcome suitable applicants within the UK with backgrounds in the private sector or from academia, including individuals who are currently retired. Please note that individuals currently employed at any of the BDR centres or academic institutions where the centres are located (Kings College London and the Universities of Bristol, Cardiff, Manchester, Newcastle and Oxford) are not eligible for this Trustee role. We are committed to increasing diversity on the ABBUK Board, and therefore encourage applications from within groups that are currently underrepresented within ABBUK.
