Patient and public involvement needed for research to reduce dementia risk in early life

We are seeking individuals with experience of dementia to input on the design of a research project exploring risk factors for dementia and the steps we can take to reduce risk earlier in the lifespan.

We are looking for volunteers who either have a diagnosis of dementia, or who have a family member or partner with dementia to help us:

1. prioritise what research is most important to individuals with a diagnosis of dementia
2. develop our research plans
3. think about how to communicate the research to members of the public.

The session will be run as an informal face-to-face meeting or telephone conversation with the researcher.
