Digital: the new frontier in healthcare

Everything is affected by the digital revolution. The opportunities for improving healthcare could be extraordinary. Interdisciplinary research is key to this. The UCL Festival for Digital Health will connect UCL’s world-class research in computer science, engineering, medicine and health service delivery. Together they can have a direct impact on the health and wellbeing of individuals, communities and populations. Collaborations across engineering and healthcare will make UCL a leading institution for Digital Health research. Join us to discover new technologies, Share achievements, Network with staff, industry and healthcare and Create new collaborations – a new momentum!

Position: Director
Affiliation: UCL Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience

I am Director of the Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience at UCL, and lead a research group investigating the neural basis of human consciousness at the internationally renowned Wellcome Trust Centre for Neuroimaging. My work has resulted in over 125 publications (including one in Nature, seven in Science, nine in Nature Neuroscience plus two definitive reviews in Nature Reviews Neuroscience). I have received over £2m in grant funding in the last five years and have been awarded the Young Investigator Medal of the Organisation for Human Brain Mapping (2003), the Royal Society Francis Crick Medal (2007) and the Experimental Psychology Society Prize (2007). I have an active and enthusiastic public engagement profile and a major interest in the development of clinical academic training in the UK with both local and national responsibilities. At UCL/UCLH I direct clinical academic education and training at the Comprehensive Biomedical Research Centre.
