Thank you to those that attended the first ADRC Research Meeting in May. We kicked off with three interesting and humorous presentations (the ignite style moving the slides on so quickly was very entertaining) from our theme leaders:
- Ageing and Dementia Friendly Environments – Prof Jan Wiener
- Nutrition and Well-being – Prof Jane Murphy
- Activity and Social Inclusion – Dr Ben Hicks
We continue with the next ADRC Research Meeting taking place at 11.15am, on 8th June 2017 in F111 (Fusion, Talbot Campus). We welcome Dr Ellen Seiss, Senior Lecturer in Psychology at Bournemouth University to talk about her research in cognitive and clinical neuroscience. Ellen conducted her PhD in sensorimotor function in Parkinson’s and Huntington’s disease. Her other research focuses on other disorders such as OCD and stroke, and an interest in the effect of glucose on cognitive function.
Ellen is currently involved in an m-health related EU Horizon 2020 project with Parkinson’s disease patients (called PD Manager) and was a co-chair for the Surrey Parkinson’s disease Research Collaboration (SPaRC) between 2012 and 2015. SPaRC’s aim was to stimulate research between two university hospitals and two universities. She also leads the ageing and neurodegenerative disorders unit in the MSc in Clinical and Developmental Neuropsychology.
We look forward to seeing you there.
