Dementia Discovery Fund Presentation
Tuesday 2nd August 2016
9.30 am, Gaddum Lecture Theatre, 1 George Square
The Dementia Discovery Fund is a multi-industry and Alzheimer Research UK funded venture capital initiative with $100million to invest in projects whose aim is to develop novel drugs for dementia. Its remit allows it to "invest in truly novel, higher-risk projects as early as target validation stage - much earlier than standard venture funds - to explore novel biological insights which may translate into disease-modifying drugs". As part of their visit to meet academics at Edinburgh, they will be giving a presentation on the fund.
