NIHR Three Schools’ Dementia Research Programme



The NIHR Schools for Primary Care Research (SPCR), Public Health Research (SPHR) and Social Care Research (SSCR) (“three Schools”) have joined together in a unique collaboration between leading academic centres in England on a programme of research and related work on dementia funded through the National Institute for Health and Care Research (NIHR).

The Three Schools’ Dementia Research Programme aims to develop the evidence base for dementia-related practice in England by commissioning and conducting high-quality research. The Programme builds on research within each School and will carry out research to address key gaps in the evidence base working collaboratively across primary care, public health and social care.


£1.25 million committed to new studies

Seven new research projects have recently funded to address key evidence gaps for dementia-related practice through the NIHR Three Schools’ Dementia Research Programme. These join the nine studies previously commissioned.
