The Dunhill Medical Trust (DMT), is a UK-based charitable trust which invests in innovation in the care of older people and research into the causes and treatments of disease, disability and frailty relating to ageing. 

Our focus is on:

  • the development of new and innovative projects
  • pump-priming projects that have the potential to develop and attract other sources of funding
  • developing research capacity within the medical, clinical, and scientific and health and social care community, particularly where this relates to issues of ageing and older people.
