Promoting collaboration and networking in frontotemporal dementia research

The Finnish FTD Research Network (FinFTD) is a network for researchers and research groups investigating or interested in frontotemporal lobar degeneration, including frontotemporal dementia (FTD) and early-onset dementia.

The aim of FinFTD is to promote interaction, networking, and collaboration among the FTD researchers in Finland and internationally. FinFTD also provides a forum to share information on current topics in FTD research.

The research interests of the participating researchers and research groups include genetics, clinical features, disease biomarkers, and molecular mechanisms of FTD.

FinFTD network received the “Communicator of the Year 2019” award from UEF Faculty of Health Sciences for active communication of its activities and research.

FinFTD research groups belong to the strategic UEF Neuroscience Research Community (NsciRC).
