In Scotland due to improved healthcare and better standards of living more people are living for longer, the number of people with dementia is expected to double between 2011 and 2031 making dementia one of the foremost public health challenges worldwide.

The Neuroprogressive and Dementia Network are dedicated to inviting healthy volunteers, people at risk of dementia, people with mild cognitive impairment, and people with dementia to participate in research.

Our Patient & Public Involvement Group helps shape, support and promote research providing valuable insight and providing a real life view of participation in research studies. This may involve reviewing proposals from researchers or getting involved in a Focus group. If you are interested in getting involved please email Tay-UHB.ndntayside@nhs.net for more details.

Across Scotland there are a wealth of research
studies taking place within dementia and neuroprogressive diseases including
Motor Neurone Disease, Parkinson’s disease, Huntington’s disease, and Multiple
Sclerosis.

Locally, in Tayside and Perth and Kinross we are proud to say that we are currently working on a number of research studies and actively looking for volunteers to participate.

If you are interested in participating in research or would like to find out more more by talking with one of our staff members we invite you to contact us.

We look forward to talking to you!
