£13m Cardiff Uni centre 'breakthrough' for dementia

Cardiff University will be home to one of six UK centres aimed at finding new ways to diagnose and treat dementia.

£13m will go to the university, with the potential for another £17m in the next five years.

Up to 60 scientific researchers will be employed in Cardiff by 2022.

Prof Julie Williams, the centre's lead, said dementia could follow in the footsteps of cancer research and "reap the benefits" of therapies brought about by significant investment.
