Dr Eneida Mioshi | Clinical Research Associate, Department of Psychiatry, University of Cambridge
My research focuses on the impact of dementias and other progressive neurodegenerative diseases on everyday functioning (e.g., Activities of daily living), and family carers.
To this end, my research involves development of better assessments of disability, investiga-tion of the underlying behavioural and cognitive symptoms behind functional disability, and developing non-pharmacological interventions that compensate for these deficits.
I am very interested in developing better assessments of disability that can bridge between the cognitive and behavioural symptoms, and the management of daily issues at home. I am committed to developing efficacious tailored interventions that could be rolled out to the health services in the future.
