The Alzheimer's Research UK (ARUK) Thames Valley Network Centre brings together researchers in and around the Thames Valley region with expertise in dementia and cognition using a range of techniques including imaging, neuropathology, genetics and model systems. The Network Centre unites dementia researchers across the Universities of Oxford, Reading and Oxford Brookes.

2020 Alzheimer’s Research UK Thames Valley Network Dementia Public Open Morning
Sadly, due to the coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic, we were unable to hold the 2020 Alzheimer's Research UK Thames Valley Network Dementia Open Morning. However, we arranged for the presenters within the network centre who were due to talk at the March public event, to give their talks online. The short talks from scientists were recorded and include a range of topics in dementia. They are available to watch on our YouTube channel We hope you find the videos informative.
Due to the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 ARUK Thames Valley Research Day was unfortunately cancelled. There are no planned events for 2021. Past events are listed on our dedicated researchers’ webpage.
