This post provides an exciting opportunity to contribute to the leadership and management of a new UKRI Network Plus (“RESPECT 4 Neurodevelopment”). RESPECT for Neurodevelopment stands for Responsible, Reliable, Scalable and Personalised Neurotechnology for Neurodevelopmental Conditions. Our goal is to build a multidisciplinary community to advance child-specific neurotechnologies to underpin precision medicine for neurodevelopmental conditions. To do this, we will create the first UK-based hub that brings together the major bioengineering and physics communities from academia and industry working on neuroimaging, wearable and mobile technologies (e.g., MRI, fNIRS, EEG, eye-tracking, digital technologies), neuroscientists, psychologists and psychiatrists working on early brain development and neurodevelopmental conditions, as well as neurodiverse people and families with lived experience who will use these technologies. They are joined by bioethicists who advise on the legal and ethical issues arising from these new technologies, and health care providers and policy makers who will be implementing them in the health care system.
(5) Helping to develop a strategic roadmap to accelerate translation of research technology to scalable tools used in clinics and at home by engaging with industry and NHS partners;
(6) Organising educational workshops and cross-sector secondments, to attract and train early career researchers, and developing a strategy for future multi-disciplinary training fellowships.
(7) Working with Industry partners on the long-term sustainability of the network.
