The former Prime Minister David Cameron has announced he's to become president of Cambridge-based charity Alzheimer's Research UK.
Mr Cameron revealed the news in The Times today, and will take up the position immediately.
He wrote that there needs to be greater funding for dementia research, as well as a more open discussion around the condition.
"We must win the battle for priorities," he said.
"Cancer research and stroke research deserve all their funding - but dementia shouldn't be so far behind."
"Dementia steals people's lives, turns their relationships upside down, destroys their hopes and dreams. We owe it to them, their families and their carers to find a solution."
The role is the second that Mr Cameron has taken since standing down following the EU referendum last year.
