The Consortium is looking for novel targets in the areas of neurodegeneration and dementia generated by scientists at academic institutions in the UK and the rest of the world.

They support target validation studies: preclinical research that aims to give confidence in the relevance of a novel target to a disease. The approaches can cover all aspects of dementia therapy, from treating the underlying pathology to improving cognition and other mental symptoms.

The targets will be early stage, but should have some supporting data to support their role in disease; for example, based on population disease association studies, siRNA and rescue studies, or transgenic animal studies.
