About us


For over thirty years, the Dunhill Medical Trust has been enabling the very best of the UK’s academic and clinical researchers to understanding the mechanisms of ageing and treating age-related diseases and frailty. We also support community-based organisations which are working to enhance the lives of those who need extra support in later life.

We particularly like to invest in supporting the careers of researchers working in areas that can support our objectives. In doing so, we aim to build a sustainable and accessible network of knowledge for all who believe that improving older people’s lives is one of the most important challenges we face as a society.

We’re a member of the Association of Medical Research Charities (AMRC), a National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) recognised non-commercial partner and a member of a consortium of UK biomedical and health research funders that contribute to the funding of Europe PubMed Central (Europe PMC), a web based information resource that provides open access to information sources for biomedical and health researchers.

We promote the highest ethical practices in scientific and medical research. We do not receive or seek funds from any external body and comply fully with the Joint Protocol of Cancer Research and Universities UK on Tobacco Industry Funding to Universities (2004).
