The NIHR HealthTech Research Centre in Brain Health

This new HealthTech Research Centre will tap into the best available technology to build important new tools that will help us deliver new treatments, better ways of diagnosing dementia and early cognitive impairment and improved care. The Centre is hosted by the South London and Maudsley (SLaM) NHS Foundation Trust, and led by Prof Dag Aarsland, Director of the Centre for Healthy Brain Ageing, School of Academic Psychiatry, Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience and lead consultant for the SLaM Remote Brain Health Clinic, together with Prof Clive Ballard at University of Exeter Medical School.

The Centre's goal is to improve the brain health of older people through better treatment and support, helping people to live longer, healthier lives. Through this centre, we will be working with group of brain-health researchers working at the leading edge of brain health research, including doctors, scientists, digital developers, statisticians and social care researchers. We work with a large group of older adults, including people from a range of ethnicities, ages, locations and backgrounds to make sure our research truly listens to the voice of people affected by brain health and ageing.

The HealthTech Research Centre in Brain Health is funded thorough a £2.9m grant from NIHR to aid diagnosis and treatment of dementia. We also have a large group of organisations from industry who will advise on our research and provide cutting-edge technology and know-how to ensure our work is at the forefront of brain health research and clinical translation.
