What we do
Working closely with a range of organisations, DEEP has direct access to the valuable insights and experience of the public and professionals. We believe that sharing knowledge and participating in research can improve the lives of people living with dementia, family members and carers.
Dementia Research in Lancashire and Cumbria
There is a growing demand for new research about dementia, and a need to embed new knowledge from research into practice. To help people to keep up to-date with the latest research, the DEEP network provides information that shares the latest research and innovations about living with dementia.
MAC Clinical Researchare a healthcare organisation dedicated to developing new and improved treatments for dementia through clinical trials. With dementia research being now more vital than ever, MAC is actively recruiting for patients living with Alzheimer's disease. Every year thousands of people take part in clinical trials. These volunteers play the most important role in helping to find tomorrow's breakthrough medications. Without these participants there would be no advances in treatment options. Below is a video to demonstrate the experience of an Alzheimer's study as MAC. By taking part in a clinical trial you can make a real difference, and you can benefit in many different ways.
There is a growing demand for new research into dementia, and a need to embed new knowledge from research into practice. DEEP aim to embed research within the network. Through a collaboration with several agencies, including the Join Dementia Research initiative, Lancaster University's Centre for Ageing Research, MAC Clinical Research and the Clinical Research Network, innovative research can be focused on issues that are of most concern within the community. We hope this will improve the lives of people living with dementia and their carers. DEEP aims to bring research to the community and ember the concept of research within our society.
