Alzheimer’s Society Doctoral Training Centres (DTC) aim to create a cluster of PhD students and clinical fellows working on themed area of dementia research. In addition to generating new knowledge on the theme, the DTCs will also provide support and training to develop the next generation of dementia research leaders.
The first four PhD studentships will be:

- Social and psychological factors contributing to maintaining cognitive health and reducing risk of dementia – hosted by University of Exeter.
- The benefits and harms of multiple medication use in older people with dementia: understand the risks and perceptions among patients and carers – hosted by University of East Anglia.
