For the last 6 weeks I joined the RAT group on a research attachment. My task was to look in to past dementia research, find a ‘gap’, then come up with an idea and finally write a grant proposal. This seemed like a huge challenge at first, as I worried I would drown in the amount of dementia research that had already been done and having only studied medicine for a year previously I had not written a grant proposal. However, building on personal experience of caring for someone with dementia, being guided by passion for exercise and an interest in exercise therapy as a prevention method and treatment, I quickly began to focus in on this branch of research.
