Online Engagement Events

We are holding a series of events for people taking part in Brains for Dementia Research, their study partners and other interested family members. We had originally planned to hold these events in person, but due to COVID-19, we will hold them online.

At these events, you’ll have the chance to find out more about the progress being made by BDR and how your support is helping to tackle dementia through research.

Each event is being led by a different BDR centre, and you are welcome to attend all four events in the series. Each event will focus on a different aspect of BDR and the research taking place. There will be short talks, and the chance for you to ask questions of the researchers. We are planning to record all the events and make them available on this page.

There will be an event each month between January and April 2021. You only need to sign up once to hear about all the events in the series.
