Our Research

Research. Understand. Cure.

We’re focused on funding leading-edge research that contributes to our collective understanding of dementia—with the ultimate goal of ending it, for good.

The research we fund could lead to the breakthrough the world has been waiting for.

In its campaign to cure dementia, CLEAR has funded or committed to fund $16 million of research, and has leveraged that funding to $25 million through its use of partnerships with Michael Smith Health Research BC, Brain Canada, Genome BC and the Alzheimer Society of Canada.

Research is dependent on on-going donations.
