Dementias Platform UK
Dementias Platform UK is a public-private partnership funded by the Medical Research Council. DPUK’s partners – ten universities and six pharmaceutical companies – have joined forces with the aim of accelerating research towards effective treatment for dementia by improving access to data. By bringing together records from over 40 different cohort studies – including brain scans, genetics and clinical records – DPUK is creating the world’s richest source of people data for use in research and drug development for dementia.
This free-to-access resource of cohort data, the Data Portal, is available for use by any bona fide researcher who is interested in investigating dementia whether based within a university or industry context. DPUK facilitates safe and secure access to this data through its Data Portal, enabling research and analyses at a scale that has not previously been possible for studies into dementia. It wishes to promote scientific research using cohort study data, and has an active programme of experimental medicine.
