Dementia lab heads to uni

Have your say

A NEW dementia research lab is to be set up at 
Edinburgh University.

Dr Iris Oren has been awarded £45,000 by Alzheimer’s Research UK and will carry out groundbreaking research into the causes of dementia.

The cash will provide her team with specialist equipment to study the brains of people with Alzheimer’s.

Dr Oren, who is preparing to move from University College London, said: “To make advances in this field requires specialist equipment. I am really excited about starting the new phase of my research in Edinburgh and look forward to making links with the world-class scientists already established here.”
