Bangor University has announced that it will be part of a new international research project examining rare forms of dementia as well as support systems in rural and remote communities. Rare forms take in what is commonly called early-onset dementia which typically affects people in their 50’s and 60’s. The project will run for five years and will also involve Nipissing University and University College London along with a partnership with the Alzheimer Society Sudbury-Manitoulin North Bay and Districts.
The project will examine a number of issues and researchers will conduct phone interviews with support groups across the UK and Canada. The program will also seek to understand how different types of support groups help different people with different dementias at various times in their journey with the illness. Other paths of inquiry will include developing ways for capturing whether support groups are effective, as well as determining how cost effective support groups are when compared with other types of service. Another important facet of the project will be to train health care professionals and researchers to recognize the needs of people with rare dementias and to learn what benefits this training may have for their work with people with more common dementias.
Bangor University’s role in this project is in keeping with their profile as a leader in health care training in Wales. The University recently opened its well-respected 3 yr (Hons) Nursing Program to Canadian Students for the first time. Applications are still being accepted for a September 2019 start. If you are interested in finding out more about any of their health care related programs or would like to apply from Canada, please contact Jackie at JSB@barclayedu.com
Scientists at the University of Southampton carrying out the first study of the effect of space flight on human muscle tone have reached a major milestone, as the team linked up with the International Space Station (ISS) for the first time.
Professor Maria Stokes and Dr Martin Warner, from the University, were awarded £191,892 by the UK Space Agency (UKSA) for their team’s part in an international project led by Professor Dieter Blottner at the Charité University in Berlin, Germany. The funding from the UKSA and Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) has enabled a Research Fellow, Paul Muckelt, to join Professor Stokes and Dr Warner.
The loss of skeletal muscle mass and strength is a well-known side-effect of space travel, despite intensive daily exercise, but the ability to test muscles during an actual mission had until now been limited by lack of appropriate equipment. The Myotones Project uses recently developed, compact, technology that enables direct non-invasive testing of muscles in a confined and weightless (termed microgravity) environment.
The project team have now had their first live video link with the astronauts on the ISS from the Toulouse Space Centre, France, where they held a data collection session and guided the astronauts in performing measurements on their muscles over the next six months.
Understanding more about what happens to muscles in weightlessness will give insights to help find the most effective ways of reducing and reversing the effects of disuse in astronauts or pathology in patients. The lessons learnt will help develop effective exercise programmes for people on Earth living with musculoskeletal and neurological disorders, as well as help reduce the effects of ageing.
Four physiotherapy students, Jonathan Bridgeman, Richard Hargrave, Charlotte Martinelli, and Kathleen Tollerfield, who recently graduated from the University contributed to the Myotones project by testing technical aspects of the testing protocol as part of their degrees, supervised by Simon Brown and Professor Stokes. Jonathan said: “Having been involved in the last two years of my degree as part of my dissertation, it was really exciting to work as part of such a unique project.
