UK Dementia Research Institute (UK DRI) at Imperial
The challenge of dementia demands new concepts, new approaches and a diverse range of new research tools and directions. A diagnosis of dementia occurs every four seconds – the UK DRI at Imperial will play a unique role in aiming to stop this current trend.
The Network of Excellence in Diabetes was established in 2018 with the goal of gaining a better understanding of the disease process and developing innovative new approaches to treatment. Key research areas are in bioinspired engineering, pancreatic islet cell biology, and disease genetics. The Network aims to provide training in the technologies focussing on the interface between disciplines, linking basic research to clinical practice.
