Thank you for taking an interest in Great Minds. We are currently recruiting highly characterised volunteers who are willing to participate in experimental medicine and clinical trials.
Our pool of members is a free-to-access, rich resource that will increase academic opportunities and renew pharma interest in developing dementia therapies. We recruit our members from cohort studies represented in the DPUK data portal and hold data on age, family history of disease, MRI scans, mood, cognition and selected genetic and lifestyle data (exercise, smoking, and alcohol).
Great Minds Feasibility tool
We have developed a Feasibility tool to enable you to determine whether the Great Minds members meet your study's requirements.

Clinical Studies Register
The Clinical Studies Register (CSR) is part of the DPUK re-contact platform designed to foster highly targeted clinical studies for conditions that cause or contribute to dementia. The CSR comprises individuals who have already undergone extensive characterisation and have pre-existing consent for re-contact through their parent DPUK cohort. By combining detailed phenotyping and, where available, genomic data from cohorts, the CSR enables risk stratification per hypothesis at a level of detail and convenience that would not be otherwise available.
