13 June, 2018 - How can I share the impact of public engagement / involvement on both my research and its broader stakeholders in a meaningful way?

Time: 14:00:00 - 15:30:00

What happens when a Public Engagement (PE) or Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) project finishes? Funders and research institutions increasingly expect project leaders to maintain future relationships with public and patient groups. Often funders will expect you to maintain those relationships and, regardless, responsible PE or PPI should plan for what happens at the end. Impact - or the change your work can make - is one way to consider the legacy of your public engagement or patient and public involvement work. This is part of a series of events to support those across the UCL School of Life and Medical Sciences (SLMS) working in Public Engagement and Patient and Public Involvement. These take place regularly, focussing on different topics each time.

Thinkspace, a forum for cross-disciplinary discussion and debate at UCL, will look at the vital moral, political, social and urban issues behind feeding London and other big cities over two events in May (May 2, May 29). We have assembled a wide range of speakers who will give their own insights into how food shapes our cities as well as ourselves. A third event in June (June 19) will explore how all our senses interact around taste and how our physical surroundings can enhance or detract from our sensory experiences.

Time: 16:00:00 - 17:00:00

Healthcare is quickly moving from a generic, reactive, care model to a personalized, proactive, care model. This tectonic change is being driven by a combination of BigData, Artificial Intelligence, and an explosion of IoT – technologies that complement each other and provide a positive feedback loop, further accelerating improvements to healthcare. These bring a plethora of challenges that I will discuss in this talk, including making data analytics timely and relevant; creating safer medical devices; implementing IoT effectively and safely in clinical settings; and making regulatory systems and risk management fit-for-purpose to deliver health technologies that are innovative, empowering… and also safe.

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

Speaker: Dr Marc Busche, Alzheimer's Disease Research Unit, Harvard Medical School & Massachusetts General Hospital Host: Troy Margrie, Associate Director No need to book, just turn up. Abstract: There is a real urgency to better understand the complexeties of Alzheim's disease, with a population aging and no effective treatments available. Alzheimer is manifest neuropathologically by both amyloid-ß plaques and tau containing neurofibrillary tangles; however, the mechanisms by which those brain lesions initiate and drive the disease remain uncertain. In my talk, I will present data, mostly from in vivo two-photon calcium imaging in mouse models, that show how Alzheimer neuropathology causes massive impairments in neuronal circuit physiology that lead to memory problems – and that such impairments can be reversed only under certain conditions, which has important implications for clinical trials in patients.

18 October, 2018 - Webinar: Key data - Longitudinal data

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

Hosted by the UK Data Service, this webinar will introduce the wide range of longitudinal datasets available at the organisation. This introductory webinar is intended for anyone who wants to learn about the wide range of longitudinal datasets available via the UK Data Service. The Service provides access to various types of longitudinal data. One of these are the British Birth Cohort Studies (e.g. the National Child Development Study 1958 and The Millennium Cohort Study) which follow the same group of children born in a specific year throughout their lives, tracking changes and unravelling the reasons behind them. Another type is the successor of BHPS, Understanding Society, an innovative and world-leading study about lives and its changes in the UK in the 21st century. And finally, there are other studies such as the English Longitudinal Study of Ageing focusing on later life, following certain age cohorts and shedding light on their specific experiences over time.
