Overview

Dr. João Delgado has a background in biological science and epidemiology and a curiosity for knowledge has led me to pursue research. Joao joined the Epidemiology and Public Health group in Exeter in October 2014, where he focuses on producing research that is easily transferable to clinical practice.

Currently, João is studying the management of conditions affecting cognitive function in old age, including dementia and delirium. João is leading the delivery of an NIHR grant on producing risk stratification tools for identifying individuals at risk of delirium living in the community. João is also currently supported by the Alzheimer’s Society, through a Junior Fellowship, to investigate prescribing quality in people living with dementia and how modes of care delivery can improve this. João brings advanced research experience, a wealth of epidemiological knowledge, a highly developed capacity for critical thinking and experience in liaising with government and public stakeholders at national and local levels.

João works collaboratively with colleagues in Exeter and abroad, including charities such as the Alzheimer’s Society and AGE UK and the University of Connecticut.

Research

Research interests

João’s research interests lie on the management of conditions affecting cognitive function in old age, including dementia and delirium. With specific focus on producing research that leads to improvements quality of life and better health services for older individuals.

João has significant experience using traditional and modern epidemiology and statistical tools to analyse  large datasets of electronical health records (CPRD primary care and linked hospital records). João is curently exploring the use of artificial intelligence and machine learning methods to help improve health care service delievry for older individuals, based on the analysis of electronic health records.

Research projects

  • Alzheimer’s Society - Junior Fellowship Application: Improving treatment of people with dementia and additional health conditions
  • National Institute for Health Research – Research for Patient Benefit: Developing tools for preventing delirium in primary care 
  • NIDUS Junior Investigator Pilot Award - Genetic variation and predisposition to delirium
