Research studies


We are currently involved in the following research studies, but are no longer recruiting to them.

IDEAL - (Improving the experience of Dementia and Enhancing Active Life). A study to understand what it is like to live with a condition like dementia or memory problems in a social and environmental context.

VALID - (Valuing Active Life in Dementia) - Evaluating a community occupational therapy intervention for people with mild to moderate dementia and their family carers. View the patient information sheet here

TOMM40 - Identifying whether or not a person at increased risk of developing Mild Cognitive Impairment due to Alzheimer’s disease and trialling an investigational medication called Pioglitzone. 

BDR-Donor Recruitment - (Longitudinal assessment of potential brain donors). Human tissue is vital for dementia research. The memory, thinking and behaviour of each prospective donor is monitored throughout their later life through regular assessments. This provides researchers with a complete medical history to accompany the donated brain tissue, allowing them to see how brain changes correlate with symptoms.

Catch Us - Identifying the needs of young people with ADHD during their transition from children’s to adult services. View the patient information sheet here
