We are delighted to announce that Prof Nick Fox (UK DRI at UCL) has been awarded the European Grand Prix 2022 by the French Alzheimer Research Foundation.
The Alzheimer Research Foundation contributes to the development of research in the field of Alzheimer's disease and other neurodegenerative diseases in France and beyond. In 2011, the Foundation created the European Research Grand Prix.
The prize, awarded annually by the Foundation’s European Scientific Committee, rewards a researcher known in the scientific community for their high-level scientific publications and capability of mobilising a team around a particularly promising research project.
Prof Nick Fox’s research focuses on the early diagnosis and study of the progression of neurodegenerative dementias as well as on biomarkers for testing potential treatments for Alzheimer's disease and related conditions. He is an expert in neuroimaging whose pioneering work in the development and application of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) methods has had impacts on the detection, diagnosis and monitoring of progression in cognitive disorders and neurodegenerative dementias.
