We urge the closest possible cooperation between the UK and the EU after Brexit to preserve vital scientific research.

We are joining The Crick, and 29 Nobel prize winning scientists, in this call.
Our aim is to bring a solution for all dementias. This is by definition an international and long-term aim: we cannot tackle this problem in isolation.
The UK is a leader in the European science landscape but the current uncertainty around Brexit is already endangering this position. The prospect of a hard Brexit would dramatically affect the ability of the UK to attract and retain the brightest minds, seriously undermining the UK’s world leading role in scientific research and innovation, and ultimately impacting our ability to improve lives.
