About Dementia Trials Ireland

Dementia Trials Ireland aims to improve the lives of individuals at risk of, or living with, dementia. We will do this by conducting high quality, internationally recognised, clinical trials throughout Ireland addressing important and common problems.

Dementia Trials Ireland (DTI) has been funded for five years by the Health Research Board (HRB).

The objective of DTI is to significantly develop and expand the current small dementia clinical trials portfolio to include studies of diverse types.  These trials will include proof of concept to implementation; non-pharmacological to pharmacological approaches, suitable for all stages and all sub-types of dementia.

Our studies will apply different methods, including imaging, biomarkers and neuropsychological methods to assess healthy volunteers, carers and people with dementia.
