More about this group


Heads of Group


The Dementia Research Group conducts pre-clinical and clinical research in dementia. We use molecular genetic, biochemical, cell culture-based and neuropathological approaches, as well as cognitive and neuroimaging studies in patients. Our aim is to translate our preclinical findings into applications that benefit patients with dementia. At the heart of this is our focus on the molecular epidemiology and pathogenesis of Alzheimer's disease and related dementias.

Part of the School of Clinical Sciences at the University of Bristol, we are based in the John James Laboratories at Frenchay Hospital. The John James Laboratories also house the Human Tissue Authority-licensed South West Dementia Brain Bank.

The Dementia Research Group is part of the University of Bristol's Institute of Clinical Neurosciences and is a member of the Bristol and Bath Alzheimer's Research UK Network Centre.

Former members of the group:

  1. Dr Katy Chalmers
  2. Wan Wan Ruzali
