EPSRC grant award for dementia research.

PET Imaging of dementia pathology.

The EPSRC has awarded a £1.3M grant  to Professors Franklin Aigbirhio, Maria Spillantini (Department of Clinical Neurosciences), Christopher Hunter and David Klenerman (Department of Chemistry) for a 3 year research project to develop PET markers for early stage misfolded proteins, characteristic of neurodegenerative disorders. Applications for these novel PET radiotracers would include earlier diagnosis of dementia and aiding the development of new drugs.
