Detecting subtle but clinically significant cognitive change in an ageing population

Project Description A major challenge facing dementia research is identifying the earliest indicators of clinically-significant cognitive decline. This research project will be linked to the newly established Memory Assessment & Cognitive Ageing Research Unit (MACARU), led by the primary supervisor. This provides the opportunity to follow the cognitive and other functional changes in a large […]

Influence of exercise and/or nutrition on bone and cartilage metabolism

Project Description There is substantial evidence that exercise is associated with lower risk of osteoporosis and is also beneficial in the prevention and management of osteoarthritis. Questions that still need addressing include the effects of specific exercise modalities (e.g. resistance versus impact exercise, higher versus lower velocity etc); interactions with nutrient availability; and mechanisms by […]

Discovery of high-temperature superconductors using Deep Learning

Project Description High temperature superconductivity has great promise to transform society through the transmission of electricity with zero resistance, though the underlying physics is complex and difficult to predict from first principles, and the space of possible materials is large and equally complex. Machine learning methods have been successfully applied to many complex problems, and […]
