The Salford Institute for Dementia at the University of Salford will be proudly hosting the Alzheimers Research UK North West Public Engagement Event 2018 on the afternoon of the 23rd May 2018 which falls within National Dementia Awareness Week. This event will be held in collaboration with The University of Manchester, Manchester Metropolitan University and The University of Liverpool.

Through interaction with academic researchers and local dementia service/information providers the aim of this event is to help the public understand the bio-psych-social nature of dementia and local advances in dementia research, whilst learning more about local dementia support networks and initiatives.

This event aims to work collaboratively with people directly impacted by dementia and provide an opportunity to celebrate the successes of local dementia associated projects. This interactive afternoon will combine traditional poster presentations, lab tours, information points, performances and family friendly activities which will take place at the Peel Park Campus at the University of Salford.

Informal enquiries should be sent to Dr Gemma Lace-Costigan ( or 01612955111) or please send your expressions of interest to
