We have committed £375 million for research into neurodegenerative disease over the next five years, including dementia. Funding is provided through the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) and UK Research and Innovation (UKRI). The NIHR and UKRI welcome funding applications for research into any aspect of human health, including dementia. All applications are subject to peer review and judged in open competition. The forthcoming dementia strategy will set out our plans for dementia in England in future years, included increasing further research. The strategy will be published later this year.
