Doctoral Training

The Bradford Doctoral Training Centre was established in 2015 as one of eight specialist DTCs in the UK funded by the Alzheimer’s Society.

We aim to build an expansive research community and create the future leaders in dementia research and dementia care.

All our PhD projects focus on improving experiences, care, health, and wellbeing at critical points for people affected by dementia.

We provide opportunities for students to discuss research, attend masterclasses with honorary professors and leading researchers, and experts by experience. We give students access to a wide range of stakeholders from health, social and third sector care and service settings.
