Interests

I am a computer officer/data manager for the Cambridge City Over-75s Cohort (CC75C) study. The initial study targeted all men and women aged 75 or older who were registered with a selection of geographically and socially representative general practices in Cambridge, It is the survivors from this group – now known as the Cambridge City over-75s Cohort – who have been followed up on at least six further occasions, with sub-groups assessed more often. Those still alive now continue to be followed up, all of them at least in their late 90s, some now centenarians. Each follow-up survey has included the Cambridge Cognitive Examination (CAMCOG), a detailed cognitive assessment that includes the Mini-Mental State Examination (MMSE).
