DPUK Datathon: multi-modal, cross-cohort data for dementia research
24/06/2022 - 01/07/2022£100
At DPUK Datathons, researchers work online in multidisciplinary teams to generate valuable new findings in dementia research.
You will use cohort data in the DPUK Data Portal to explore a particular research question relating to dementia risk and progression.
Datathons are ideal for early-career researchers who specialise in statistical analysis or machine learning methods. They are led by DPUK’s Senior Data and Science Manager, Dr Sarah Bauermeister.
The events include:
–Expert introduction to selected population cohorts
–Guided cohort analysis workshops
–Support and guidance during offline periods
–Potential for studies to develop into publications
Our next Datathon will take place over six working days between 24 June and 1 July and will be on the theme of multi-modal (ie survey, genetic and imaging), cross-cohort data analysis for dementia research. The full programme of speakers and sessions will be confirmed shortly.
