Bringing together clinicians and researchers in the UK working on frontotemporal dementia and associated disorders.

FTDUK is co-ordinated by Professor Jonathan Rohrer (University College London) and Professor James Rowe (University of Cambridge).

We run an Early Career Researcher prize for FTD researchers – this is open to any researcher who is a research assistant, PhD student or postdoctoral researcher within 5 years of completion of their PhD.

We have been running FTD UK since 2011 and after an absence during the Covid pandemic we returned in 2023 to run our 10th meeting. The meeting remains free to attend and will next be in Cambridge in 2024. Our meeting schedule is not yet set and if you would like to recommend a speaker for that meeting please do email us. The Register link in the top right hand corner will open in early 2024.

We are very thankful to Alzheimer’s Research UK who have kindly helped to fund the event each year through a conference grant, and to the Alzheimer’s Society who have funded the Early Career Researcher Prize awards.
