Our Dementia research is part of Loughborough University Health and Wellbeing (HWB) Global Challenge http://www.lboro.ac.uk/research/excellence/challenges/health-wellbeing/). This strategic approach supports multi-disciplinary research in bringing complex real world solutions to promote health and wellbeing across the life course. Other research priorities within HWB include Planetary Health and Anti-Microbial Resistance.
