Currently, there is no cure for Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia. To help create a world without dementia, the Society champions research for tomorrow’s treatments and cures. We support quality-of-life and biomedical research across Canada through the Alzheimer Society Research Program. We also help nurture research and discovery here in B.C. through supporting recruitment, partnering with local researchers, and through initiatives such as the Ralph Fisher and Alzheimer Society of B.C. Professorship in Alzheimer Disease Research at the University of British Columbia.

Read our 2019 research handout A Focus on Research to learn about dementia-friendly research, to read the biggest research stories of the past year and get tips on how to spot unreliable research.
