As Chief Executive Hilary has led the transformation of the charity to one of the leading medical research charities in the UK
She has seen the charity more than triple its income in three years and therefore significantly enhanced the organisation’s ability to fund groundbreaking new projects.
Alzheimer’s Research UK currently funds 140 research projects with a network of over 2,000 researchers working on the causes, symptoms treatments and diagnosis of Alzheimer’s.
Before joining Alzheimer’s Research UK, Hilary led the campaigning work at Age UK, improving the lives of people in later life both in the UK and internationally. She holds an honorary doctorate in medicine from The University of Exeter.
