LBS Research Strategy

To make sure that we fund the best Lewy body dementia research projects we have a thorough peer review process which follows guidelines set out by the Association of Medical Research Charities.

Our Specialist Advisory Committee ensures that we make the correct funding decisions.

The members of the Specialist Advisory Committee are 15 UK-based experts who review all our applications for grant funding, along with input from expert reviewers from across the world.

We support the principle of using animals in research when it is necessary to advance understanding of health and disease and to develop new treatments. This research only takes place where there is no alternative available. All AMRC member charities support this principle, as outlined in this statement.
