International Advisory Board

The work of DSDC is supported by an International Advisory Board made up of leading figures in research, policy and practice in health, social care, housing and dementia from across the world


The Advisory Board exists:

  • to provide strategic advice on priorities and focus for the work of DSDC
  • to strengthen the governance of DSDC in relation to the relevance and quality of its work
  • to nurture strategic partnerships which enhance the reach and sustainability of DSDC


The Board complements the governance arrangements of the University within which DSDC operates.
