Dyson brings new perspective to Alzheimer’s research


The James Dyson Foundation funds a £1.5m dementia research Fellowship in partnership with Race Against Dementia (RAD), a charity founded by former F1 driver Sir Jackie Stewart. The RAD Dyson Fellow, Dr Claire Durrant, seeks to establish new human models of Alzheimer’s disease, investigating the role of tau – a protein implicated in dementia. Claire’s five-year Fellowship champions the collaboration of different industries: biological complexity combined with an engineer’s mindset to accelerate change in dementia research.
