Alzheimer’s Society is deeply saddened to hear of the recent death of Professor Stuart Pickering-Brown.
Stuart made significant contributions to dementia research and was a recognised authority within the genetics of neurodegenerative diseases, particularly frontotemporal dementia. Alongside the lasting impact of his scientific contribution, Stuart also made a great impact on the lives and careers of those around him, through his extensive knowledge and inspiring mentorship. While we had only just begun to work with Stuart in his role as a new member of our Research Strategy Council, his desire to engage with and improve society’s awareness of dementia made him invaluable to the dementia community.
We send our sincerest condolences to Stuart’s family, friends, and colleagues.
