The University of Liverpool is to become part of a major new network dedicated to the research of Alzheimer’s in the North West.
As part of the Manchester and North West Network Centre, nearly 80 researchers at the Universities of Manchester, Lancaster and Liverpool will receive £80,000 investment from Alzheimer’s Research UK over two years.
The investment is part of the charity’s £100 million Defeat Dementia fundraising campaign, announced in June by the Prime Minister.
The increased regional funding will allow researchers to pursue new ideas through conference travel bursaries, equipment grants and support for small innovative projects.
Pursuing new ideas
Professor Jerry Turnbull from the Institute of Integrative Biology is leading the University of Liverpool’s input into the Network. He said: “The regional ARUK Centre will be a tremendous boost to our resources for regional and national collaborations, allowing us to push forwards with existing research and develop new projects aimed at improving our understanding of AD and finding new ways to tackle the disease.”
Alzheimer’s Research UK will support 15 Network Centres of scientific excellence across the UK, including a centre in Manchester and North West.
