Our mission is

  • to advance the understanding the nervous system and diseases associated with frontotemporal dementias and neurodegeneration, including the part they play in determining behavior;

  • to bring together scientists from various backgrounds and disciplines;

  • to facilitate the integration of research directed at all levels of biological organization;

  • to promote education in the neurosciences and inform the general public on the results and implications of current research in neuroscience; and

  • to promote other activities that will contribute to the development of neuroscience.

Mission Statement

 It is with great sadness that we acknowledge the death of our friend and colleague Stuart Pickering Brown. As a researcher in genetics, Stuart was involved in the identification of genetic causes of FTD from the very beginning. He was a visiting scientist in Mike Hutton's lab at Mayo Clinic Jacksonville, Florida USA between 2003 and 2005. After his return to Manchester, UK, he contributed extensively to the identification of Progranulin mutations in 2006, and of C9orf72 repeat expansions in 2011. Stuart was (co-)author of more than 100 papers in peer-reviewed journals. Together with David Mann and Julie Snowden, he organized the 8th International Conference on Frontotemporal Dementia in 2012. Stuart was a well-known member of the ISFTD since its foundation. We will remember Stuart as a very friendly colleague with a strong commitment to research in frontotemporal dementia.
