Bringing together clinicians and researchers in the UK working on frontotemporal dementia and associated disorders.
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.
2020 will be the first year we have not run a meeting in 10 years but we are aiming to come back in Autumn 2021 with our 10th meeting.
