Dementias Platform UK

DPUK was funded by the Medical Research Council (MRC) to facilitate and accelerate the discovery of new ways to understand, diagnose, and treat dementia. It is a public-private partnership that offers facilitated access to detailed information for over 3 million individuals, from 47 long-term studies of health, known as 'cohort' studies. By joining data from all these studies, DPUK provides an integrated and collaborative environment, bringing together scientists from academia and industry to share knowledge and conduct joint research programmes. It is a foundation for new ways of working with academia, industry, regulators, health care providers, patients and the public.
