Multi-scale multi-factorial multiparadigm modelling

VPH-DARE@IT will deliver the first patient-specific predictive models for early differential diagnosis of dementias and their evolution.

This goal will be achieved through the following objectives:

  • Deliver a systematic, multi-factorial and multi-scale modelling approach to understanding dementia
  • Explore the lifestyle and environmental factors that predispose individualsto the development of dementia
  • Deliver more objective and accurate differential diagnoses than those currently available in Europe
  • Shorten the current average time-lapse between the onset of cognitive and memory deficits and its specific clinical diagnosis

VPH-Dare@IT concept in a nutshell: combining the appropriate modelling paradigm
and accounting for environmental and lifestyle factors at each level.
