Dr Veronika van der Wardt, Senior Research Fellow

Veronika’s research interests lie in the area of dementia, cognition, research methods, neuropsychological assessment and psychometrics. They include test development, complex clinical trials, health of older people, well-being and learning disabilities. She is currently working on two projects, the Hypertension in Dementia study, which investigates if antihypertensive treatment can be safely withdrawn in people with dementia, and the Balance and the Mind study, which involves an intervention to reduce the risk of falls in people with mild cognitive impairment and early stage dementia.
