Somalogic Joins UK Dementias Research Platform

SomaLogic announced that is a launch partner of the Medical Research Council's UK Dementias Research Platform, a £16 million ($27 million) public-private partnership set up to speed up research into dementias. The collaboration aims to enable earlier detection, improved treatment and, ultimately, prevention of the disease, by looking not just at what is going wrong in the brain, but at the brain in the context of the whole body. The UKDP brings together both industry expertise and investigator teams from eight universities, and teams them with what will be the group of participants in dementias research (more than two million people). The Platform will investigate the causes of dementia across a range of different neurodegenerative conditions, such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and motor neurone disease.
