NCTalks at the ARUK Conference 2017: Bart De Strooper on the new UK Dementia Research Institute

Two key themes to come out of the Alzheimer’s Research UK (ARUK) Conference (Aberdeen, UK, 14–15 March 2017) were the celebration of world-class research, and hope for the future of dementia understanding, prevention and treatment, particularly with the forging and strengthening of new partnerships, collaborations and initiatives.
In May 2016, ARUK committed £50 million to support the MRC-led UK Dementia Research Institute (DRI), a new hub of dementia research based at University College London (UK), with additional centers across the UK to be announced imminently. Following an international search for a figurehead for this new initiative, Bart De Strooper was recently announced as the Director of the Institute.

In this NCTalks podcast, recorded live at the ARUK Conference, we caught up with Prof De Strooper to find out more about the DRI and his visions for this exciting new venture for dementia research.
