Danielle Newby

B.Sc, PhD


Postdoctoral Researcher

I am an early career dementia researcher with an interdisciplinary background in epidemiology, machine learning and pharmacology. Since April 2016, I have been working as a post-doctorate researcher in the informatics team of the Translational Neuroscience and Dementia Research Group jointly led by Sir Professor Simon Lovestone and Professor Noel Buckley.

My main areas of research within the team involve the analysis of real-world data such as medical electronic health records (EHR) datasets in order to characterise the role of certain diseases, their risk factors and drug treatments with dementia risk and cognitive decline. By understanding these relationships this will provide an evidence base to support public health intervention for dementia prevention.

My previous research positions concentrated on investigating the effects of pharmacological and physical activity interventions on ageing using genetic datasets. This previous experience built on my PhD research where I utilised machine learning and statistical methods to predict oral absorption of pharmacological compounds.
