Dementias Platform UK
DPUK has increased the capacity of dementia research in the UK by developing national technological networks, research collaborations and a data portal that is accessible to researchers worldwide. This promotes research in experimental medicine and with cohort data.
DPUK’s Data Portal facilitates secure access to cohort data, enabling research and analyses at a scale that has not previously been possible for studies into dementia. This powerful combination of technology and expertise is helping detect the earliest signs of dementia.
