Uk Dri Homepage Carousel 2

We are now seeking experienced trustees to join the board of UK DRI Ltd, the charitable company established to govern the institute. This is a critical time for dementia research and the UK DRI has a bold vision to drive rapid progress. 

If you would strengthen our board and could play a leading role in the development of a world-leading programme of dementia research, we would like to hear from you. 

We are particularly interested in candidates with the following expertise:

  • Basic/translation science
  • Population and public health science
  • Industry (life sciences)
  • Finance
  • Legal
  • Public engagement
  • Communications, media and digital
  • Governance
  • Public sector
  • Research Charities
  • Experience of dementia research

The board will meet no fewer than three times a year with its work further supported by sub-committees to be convened. We invite and encourage trustees to attend as many trustee meetings as possible, represent the board on sub-committees, as well as providing them with opportunities to represent the charity in other forums including external roles and at public events.

All new trustees will be fully supported through a full induction, followed by ongoing support from our senior management and governance teams.

These roles are unremunerated, but reasonable expenses will be reimbursed.

On behalf of its three founder members, Alzheimer’s Research UK is carrying out the recruitment of trustees. If you would like to express your interest in this role, please submit your CV and cover letter to Stef Parsons on
