The ROADMAP project launches its Data Cube. The Cube offers a dynamic overview of the ‘landscape’ of data availability in Europe for Alzheimer’s disease research.
Alzheimer's Brain function Brain imaging Cognitive Dementia Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Medical co-morbidity Medicine
Nearly a third of dementia cases can be prevented by modifying our lifestyle, in particular our cardiovascular health. While we know that “what’s good for the heart is good for the brain”, we still don’t entirely know why. Our group investigates this heart-brain link in detail, by studying how the health of our heart and large blood vessels affect the brain and memory as we grow older.
Alzheimer's Case registers Clinical trial Dementia Dopamine Neuroscience Parkinson's
We have three main areas of activity, all aiming towards secondary prevention of dementia. By understanding disease mechanisms we seek potential therapeutics; through discovery of biomarkers we hope to enable preventative trials, and with informatics we utilise large biological and clinical datasets in the support of translational neuroscience.

Neuroimaging provides a window into the living brain, and is an increasingly vital experimental medicine tool for neuro-psychiatric disease. With a particular focus on early and pre-clinical disease, we explore how the brain changes before symptoms take hold.
