Dr Janice Ranson

Research Fellow in Dementia Prevention and Diagnostics

 College House 

 

College House, University of Exeter, St Luke's Campus, Heavitree Road, Exeter, EX1 2LU, UK

Overview

Janice is the Deputy Director of the Deep Dementia Phenotyping (DEMON) Network, an international initiative supporting the application of data science and artificial intelligence to dementia research (see www.demondementia.com).

Working in partnership with Dementias Platform UK and the UK Dementia Research Institute, the DEMON Network has amassed a membership of over 950 innovators across 6 continents, representing over 100 universities and over 50 commercial companies. As part of this role, Janice manages the research activity of 8 multidisciplinary Working Groups, which focus on delivery of collaborative publications, funding applications and knowledge exchange.

Janice's own research interests are in primary and secondary dementia prevention and diagnostics. Her expertise includes development and validation of prediction models for different conditions and settings, including developing screening tools for clinical trial recruitment, and modelling disease outcomes for use in clinical settings. This work has resulted in the development of a clinical decision support system for dementia identification (DECODE).

Janice also participates in several international collaborative initiatives, including a series of cross-national comparisons of health and aging coordinated by the NIA-funded Integrative Analysis of Longitudinal Studies of Aging (IALSA), and is a member of the European Task Force for Brain Health Services.
