Research

Currently, there is no cure for Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia; by 2031 an estimated 1.4 million Canadians will be living with dementia. Research is key to changing this story. To move towards our vision of a world without dementia, the Alzheimer Society of B.C. champions research for tomorrow's treatment and cures. We support quality of life and biomedical research across Canada and nurture innovative research and discovery locally.  

Read our 2020 research handout, A focus on research, to learn about the biggest research stories of the past year, how to be a better consumer of research news and what it's like to participate in research. For more about dementia research in B.C., access the 2019 and 2017 research handouts. (There was no publication in 2018.)
