Our collaborative project brings together a multi-disciplinary team with diverse expertise, including researchers, filmmakers and public engagement experts.
We are also fortunate to have the expertise of an advisory group, comprised of leading charities and health organisations working to support those with dementia.
The project is co-ordinated by the Wellcome Centre for Human Neuroimaging (WCHN) at UCL.
