28 September, 2016 - On the Design of Personal Health Technologies for Mental Disorder

Time: 15:00:00 - 16:00:00

Speaker: Professor Jakob E. Bardram, Technical University of Denmark In this talk I will present our research into the design of personal health technologies for patients suffering from mental disorders. Based on research done as part of the EU-funded MONARCA project, I will present the user-centred design of the technology and present results from clinical pilot trials. I will also share our experience in being part of “real” randomized clinical trial that seeks to establish clinical evidence for the efficacy of personal health technology in improving treatment outcome. I will reflect upon the challenges of combining a user-centred, agile, flexible design process with a rigours clinical trial.

29 September, 2016 - Longitudinal Methodology Series Seminar

Time: 12:30:00 - 13:30:00

Speakers: George Ploubidis, Tarek Mostafa and Brian Dodgeon Book now - spaces limited to 30 Missing data handling in longitudinal studies: Evidence for the 1958 British birth cohort. Selection bias, in the form of incomplete or missing data, is unavoidable in longitudinal surveys. It results in smaller samples, incomplete histories, lower statistical power and it is well known that unbiased estimates cannot be obtained without properly addressing the implications of incompleteness. We present the first results from the Centre for Longitudinal Studies Missing Data Strategy using data from the National Child Development Study (NCDS) which follows the lives of 17,416 people born in England, Scotland and Wales in a single week of 1958 [6].

29 September, 2016 - The Data Dialogue: When research crosses borders

Time: 09:30:00 - 17:00:00

In an increasingly globalised world, research is reaching beyond geographical borders, raising questions on the methods, laws, and possibilities in moving or sharing data internationally. As the volume and type of data we create becomes more varied, sensitive, and complex, we need to ask: what are our own responsibilities as professional researchers collecting data overseas? Who is ultimately accountable for data produced with foreign partners? What happens when national laws and policy differ dramatically? May strategies be usefully shared within or across disciplines? We are pleased to invite Early Career Researchers, Academics, and Support Staff to research projects with an international sharing focus. Join us at The University of Oxford to hear from key speakers from the UK’s international research landscape and join a discussion amongst peers with tangible experience in accessing, sharing, and managing data across borders.

3 November, 2016 - UCL Ageing Event – cultivating research connections across the University

Time: 13:30:00 - 18:00:00

This is a half-day event aimed primarily at UCL staff from postdoctoral research associates to senior lecturers who work on ageing research in a wide variety of disciplines, including epidemiology, bioscience, neuroscience, engineering, economics and infection and immunity. UCL has significant strength in ageing research, however, key researchers at UCL that work on ageing are unfamiliar with other scientists who work in different age-related disciplines. This is a missed opportunity, especially given the increased focus on lifelong health and wellbeing in the Government’s current priorities for research funding. The purpose of this meeting is therefore to enable more junior UCL researchers working on all aspects of ageing to network and to encourage new collaborations.
