Research with care

We work with global, national and local partners to conduct high-quality and ground-breaking research into mental and physical health, and support innovation
to improve patient care. 
Every year we run over 150 studies and work with over 1,500 volunteers to learn more about dementia,
learning disabilities, physical and mental health and find new therapies and treatments.
