About Dementias and neurodegeneration research

The Clinical Research Network: Dementias and neurodegeneration (DeNDRoN) supports the set up and delivery of clinical research in the NHS in a range of diseases including dementias, Parkinson’s disease, motor neurone disease and Huntington’s disease.

These diseases are increasingly understood to have commonalities in underlying mechanisms, patient experience, and symptoms; and their management is increasingly multi-disciplinary and converging over time. Advances in understanding of these diseases and new treatments are likely to come from inter-disciplinary research between them.
