The PRIDE project aims to find ways that people diagnosed with dementia can stay independent for longer. It is one of six ESRC-funded project in the UK (three more of them are within UCL) that together comprise the world’s largest study into dementia. The meeting yesterday had representatives from Universities of East Anglia, Manchester, Sheffield, Hull and Loughborough as well as two universities in Santa Catarina in Brazil. The programme is extremely ambitious and it was great to get the team together for the first time, with the first component starting shortly. We look forward to bringing you more details of this in the coming weeks.
