Aspire CREATe Centre for Rehabilitation Engineering and Assistive Technology

*** We are recruiting a Clinical Senior Lecturer / Honorary Consultant Physician and a Research Associate ***

Head: Dr Rui Loureiro

Aspire Create, the Centre for Rehabilitation Engineering and Assistive Technology, is an exciting new joint research venture between the Aspire Charity, University College London and the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, Stanmore. The centre was established at the beginning of 2014 to develop translational research to improve the quality of life of people with spinal cord injuries (SCIs). Currently, it houses five academics (Dr Tom Carlson, Dr Lynsey Duffell, Dr Rui Loureiro, Dr Steve Taylor and Dr Anne Vanhoestenberghe), along with their researchers. This rapidly growing centre investigates techniques that are applicable and transferable between different domains in related areas of interest, including, but not limited to stroke, muscular dystrophy, amputation, the ageing population and training of specialised skills (e.g. surgical).
