Cambridge Public Health & Department of Engineering Workshop

This workshop will formally introduce Cambridge Public Health (co-led by Professor Carol Brayne and Professor John Clarkson) as part of the School of Technology and highlight opportunities for potential links and collaborations across Engineering, Public Health and beyond. We are planning a series of presentations by Engineering colleagues on their research followed by an open discussion about how potential connections can be developed.

Short talks include:

Professor Per Ola Kristensson - Computational interaction and its application to design state-of-the-art virtual and augmented reality interfaces

Professor Roberto Cipolla - Computer Vision in Health Care

Professor Joan Lasenby - Meerkat non-invasive continuous monitoring of babies in the NICU

Professor Andrew Flewitt - Acoustic Resonator Biosensors for Point of Care Testing

Professor George Malliaras - Bioelectronic Technologies for Healthcare

Dr Joy Goodman-Deane and Mike Bradley - Inclusive design approaches and applications

Dr Tom Bashford - Understanding healthcare systems: participatory conceptualisation, visualisation, and optimisation

Dr James Ward & Dr Jonathan Cullen - Sustainable Health and Care

CPH Seminar: Towards a value proposition for Ageing Friendly Communities
CPH Seminar: Towards a value proposition for Ageing Friendly Communities - 26 Nov 2021

People are living longer. Yet for many, the opportunities afforded by a longer life – to themselves and society – are lost due to poor health and difficulty remaining involved in society. This is exacerbated by socioeconomic disadvantage, and associated with increasing social and economic costs. The balance between the ‘burden’ and the benefits of an ageing population can thus be tipped either way. One promising approach is to design enabling ‘ageing-friendly’ environments that support people to live well.
