Description

Dementia Futures 2018

The University of Sheffield's Dementia Futures 2018 is a conference for members of the public who are affected by dementia and for organisations who represent or offer support to persons affected by dementia.

There is a tremendous range of dementia-related research being undertaken at the University of Sheffield. These studies are taking place in disciplines ranging from neurosciences to sociology.

Dementia Futures 2018 is important because it showcases the emerging research of PhD students at the University of Sheffield. This is cutting-edge research which is still in progress.

Our PhD students would like to share with you what they are doing, to communicate this research in an accessible way and to hear what you think about their studies and what difference their findings might make in future. At Dementia Futures 2018, PhD students will present their research in short presentations, offering plenty of opportunities for questions and interactive discussion. The focus will be on improving our mutual understanding, sharing academic and lay dementia expertise, facing the challenges of dementia together.
