Alzheimer's Research UK
Alzheimer's Research UK is the UK's leading dementia research charity. As research experts, we specialise in funding world-class, pioneering research at leading universities to find preventions, treatments and a cure for dementia. We believe science and innovation hold the key to defeating dementia and invest in the scientists learning more about the condition and its causes. Our findings improve the lives of everyone affected by dementia now and in the future. We forge partnerships with Government and other key organisations to make dementia research a national priority. We encourage everyone to join us in supporting research and achieving a world free from dementia.

Laser Analytics London 10k for ARUK

Who are we?

We're Florian, Laurie and Nathan from the Laser Analytics Group at the Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology, University of Cambridge and we're running the Bupa London 10K for Alzheimer's Research UK. As part of a diverse group of engineers, physicists and biologists we build state of the art super-resolution microscopes to investigate the molecular mechanisms behind neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's.

Why are we running?

Although life expectancy continues to rise across the Western world, as we age it becomes more likely that we develop diseases such as heart disease, cancer and Alzheimer's. Despite the increasing prevalence of Alzheimer's disease and the enormous impact it will have on our society, there are no effective diagnostics or treatments capable of delaying its onset or slowing its progression. Alzheimer's Research UK is a charity that helps fund research into the causes of the disease and allows us and thousands of other scientists around the country carry out their work. We're running the Bupa London 10K to raise money for ARUK and spread the word about the great work that they do!
