    Research Abstract

    Funding is requested to support high-throughput genomic approaches that capitalises on and enriches the existing ARUK Consortium resource.  This will maximise the value of substantive on-going ARUK-funded resources, namely the ARUK DNA Bank and the Brains for Dementia Research (BDR) initiative.  Since its inception over a decade ago the ARUK DNA Bank has grown to include over 4200 samples with additional samples still being added from collaborating centres on a yearly basis.  We now wish to collaborate with the BDR and incorporate their resource into our bank.  All additional samples will be included in our current and future genetic studies.
