Funding for Alzheimer’s Research

Freemasons have supported medical research into Alzheimer’s for many years, and the MCF’s most recent grant to Alzheimers Research UK is funding a PhD studentship at Edinburgh University.
Memory loss is one of the biggest symptoms of Alzheimer’s Disease, but scientists are still unclear whether memory problems are caused because memory cells fail to store memories, or because they can no longer fetch the stored information. By solving this puzzle, our PhD student hopes to unlock new treatments and help people keep hold of their precious memories.
