The SEE awards Natàlia Soldevila-Domènech for her work on the prevention of cognitive deterioration

The Spanish Society of Epidemiology (SEE) in its XVII edition has awarded the "Prize for research by young researchers. Edition 2021: Miguel Carrasco" to Natàlia Soldevila-Domènech, predoctoral researcher of the Integrative Pharmacology and Systems Neuroscience research group at IMIM, for the project "Analysis of trajectories of cognition evaluated in a continuous manner with cognitive training tasks in older adults at risk of Alzheimer 's disease".

The work aims to evaluate the feasibility, validity and reliability of a measure of cognition obtained from the performance on self?administered computerized cognitive training tasks, and to identify and characterize subgroups of elderly individuals following a similar cognitive trajectory during the course of a preventive intervention for cognitive decline (PENSA Study). Results from this study are expected to provide relevant information on the inter-individual variability in treatment response after preventive interventions for AD, which will be important for designing future medicine precision prevention studies.

The award is endowed with 2000 € and aims to support the education and training of young people in the field of research. It aims to facilitate the development of a research project in epidemiology by young researchers under 35 years of age who have not yet obtained their PhD and have less than 5 years of experience in epidemiology and public health.
