From sensors to artificial intelligence: creating dementia-friendly ‘Healthy Homes’ as intelligent environments that transform and personalise care.
This interdisciplinary and innovative centre catalyses the development of the necessary technology and data science. They will optimise these technologies in a model home environment, deploy them in real-world evaluation studies and then, having established an evidence base, deliver them to people with dementia and their carers. The centre will:
The UK DRI runs a Cross-Centre Postdoctoral Programme, designed to simultaneously fund exciting emerging science and to foster intra-UK DRI collaboration through support of a postdoctoral position based across two UK DRI Centres. This is an exciting opportunity to work on a research project to establish a synergistic collaboration between Prof David Sharp’s laboratory (based at the UK DRI Care Research & Technology Centre) and Dr Marc Aurel Busche’s laboratory (based at the UK DRI at UCL). You’ll examine the effects of traumatic brain injury on neuronal circuit and neurovascular function in vivo, recording neuronal activity and vascular dynamics using state of the art two-photon and electrophysiological (Neuropixels) methods and linking this to available human datasets. This is fantastic chance to work independently on a high impact, state-of-the-art collaborative and cross-species project in a stimulating and vibrant research environment.
