Data Science

Championing and applying newest methods in data science to address problems of human ageing to improve health in later life.

Our data science team aims:

  1. To bring together and foster a community of people working in data science for older people.
  2. To develop a focus on training and knowledge – particularly new methods with application to older people, offer open space for scrutiny, to support PhD students and interns and in time to develop basic training to newcomers to the field.
  3. To develop a network and community of people working in this space also to enable new collaborations to develop for funding bids, and support career progression.
  4. To ensure patients and the public are at the heart of all our work, we will maintain strong links with diverse groups in our community and facilitate access to these groups to develop new research questions to ensure they address key priorities of older people and their carers.

For more information please contact theme lead Dr Oliver Todd, co-lead Dr Kate Best.
