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 Deputy Director of the Deep Dementia Phenotyping (DEMON) Network, a global initiative supporting the application of data science and artificial intelligence to dementia research (see www.demondementia.com). Since launching in late 2019, the network has amassed a membership of over 1,300 innovators across 6 continents, representing over 100 universities and over 50 commercial companies. Janice oversees strategic partnership development and manages the research activity of 7 multidisciplinary Working Groups, which focus on delivery of collaborative publications, funding applications and knowledge exchange.

Janice's scientific expertise includes development and validation of clinical prediction models, incorporating a wide range of clinical, biomarker and genetic features from large population-based cohorts and clinical datasets. Her work has included development of prognostic models for use in specialist settings such as the National Prion Disease Unit, screening tools for clinical trial recruitment, and prediction models for primary care, including a clinical decision support system for dementia identification in non-specialist settings (DECODE).

International collaborations include invited membership of the NIH/NIA-funded Integrative Analysis of Longitudinal Studies of Aging (IALSA) initiative, and the European Task Force for Brain Health Services. Most recently, she co-founded a new Alan Turing Institute Interest Group in Precision Dementia Medicine, and a new Alzheimer's Association International Society to Advance Alzheimer's Research and Treatment (ISTAART) Professional Interest Area in AI for Precision Dementia Medicine.

Qualifications

  • PhD Medical Studies, University of Exeter
  • MSc Psychological Research Methods (Distinction, Programme Prize and Dean's Commendation), University of Exeter
  • BSc Psychology (First Class), Royal Holloway, University of London
