Staff Profile

Dr Ilianna Lourida

Associate Research Fellow

Kath Maguire

I joined PenCLAHRC in September 2015 to work within the Evidence Synthesis Team. The main purpose of my post is to lead a systematic review relating to the dissemination and implementation of evidence-based practices in dementia care.  By the end of this review which is supported by the Alzheimer’s Society, we will hopefully know more about effective strategies to disseminate and implement practices to improve dementia care, and the associated barriers and facilitators.

Prior to my role as an Associate Research Fellow, I completed a PenCLAHRC-funded PhD investigating the role of lifestyle factors and metabolic dysfunction in late onset dementia. During my studies I was involved in a number of systematic reviews and prospective analyses of potentially modifiable dementia risk factors. Now I hope to use my enthusiasm and skills to contribute to dementia research by working on this project aiming to strengthen the link between academic research and service delivery.
