I hate it when conferences continue to email you to suggest you book / attend… after you’ve already booked… which every time makes me think… oh, did I book? I’d better check

It also confirms that 60% of dementia researchers are now women, sadly women only only 39% of senior positions - Whilst 39% is dissapointing, I can't help but think this must still be better than many other research field.

A highlight from todays @UKDRI care & tech centre launch was the talks by Sarah Daniels & Paul Freemont. Seeing an activity graph of someone with a routine and live in care compared to someone without was startlling + early detection of #UTI was super clever.

Great talks at the @UKDRI care & tech centre launch. Brilliant start making use of wearables and smart home tech created data - so much potential for #dementia prevention, monitoring and informing treatments, and so many other tech companies who could partner
