Under the joint program, postdoctoral researchers engaged in dementia research will be provided with a grant from 2019 to 2023.

The DRI in the UK will contribute to its state-of-the-art research facilities and Eisai will provide its drug discovery and translation expertise, which will support the work of the organization in clarifying novel drug discovery targets and mechanisms, developing novel dementia models, and accelerating the development of new drugs. linking these research findings to diagnostics, treatment and care.

"Eisai is delighted to be able to initiate this joint program with the UK DRI, the world's largest dementia research institute," said Dr Teiji Kimura, chief discovery officer of the Neuroscience Business Group.

He continued, "As the first co-operation program by the UK DRI with a private company, this program is a very unique effort to provide an environment in which postdoctoral researchers engaged in the latest research on dementia in the UK can To show the whole Under this program, we hope to achieve new ideas that can be associated with dementia treatment.
