Student projects tell us more about ageing research across the world
We are delighted to share outputs from Newcastle University postgraduate students who were the recipients of Newcastle Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) bursaries.
As part of our commitment to supporting early career researchers, the Newcastle BRC supported students who were undertaking MRes projects. Their work is a valuable addition to our knowledge in this area, with which we seek to learn more about the causes, treatments and prevention of age-related and multiple long-term conditions, in order to translate these to patient benefit.
The students’ topics ranged from cancer trials, diagnosing dementia, and supporting older people in rural Tanzania.
We have shared the posters of each project below:
- Fiona Cooper – Social vulnerability predicts mortality in rural Tanzania (pdf)
- Laura Fitzgerald – Clinical utility of cell-free DNA analysis in matching patients with advanced cancer to early phase drug trials (pdf)
- Jerry Hai Kok Tan – Multimodal EEG-MRI in the diagnosis of mild cognitive impairment with Lewy bodies (pdf)
