Treatment and management

‌Leads: Professor Alistair Burns and Dr Iracema Leroi

This theme involves testing the feasibility and applicability of diagnostic procedures and translating these quickly through clinical trials.

Accurate identification of dementia type allows patients and carers to be placed on the most appropriate care pathway.

We work in collaboration with our partner NHS and social care organisations - including primary care providers - across Greater Manchester to test the feasibility and applicability of enhanced diagnostic procedures.

Through our clinical-research interface, we are well placed to recruit patients into clinical trials and to provide rapid translation of advances in therapeutics and management into patient benefit.
