Advance Aging Research with Digital Assessment & Intervention Technologies
Speaker: Jeffrey Kaye, MD
Dr. Kaye is the Layton Professor of Neurology and Biomedical Engineering at Oregon Health and Science University (OHSU). He directs the OHSU NIA-Layton Aging and Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center (OADRC), ORCATECH (the Oregon Center for Aging and Technology), and ORCASTRAIT (the Oregon Roybal Center for Care Support Translational Research Advantaged by Integrating Technology). Dr Kaye’s long-standing research focus has been to advance methods to sustain healthy aging and treat dementia. This work has been facilitated by a remarkable cadre of interdisciplinary colleagues and collaborators both within the OADRC and ORCATECH, as well as many others at other research centers around the world. Through these many associations, Dr. Kaye has enjoyed extensive experience in team-building, designing, conducting and analyzing studies of aging and neurodegenerative diseases across a wide spectrum of environments (e.g., clinics, community residences, assisted living and nursing facilities, ‘smart’ homes), designs (e.g., program projects, longitudinal natural history studies, proof-of-concept studies, randomized controlled trials, online surveys), and approaches (e.g., cognitive and behavioral testing, genetics, neuroimaging, biomarkers, in-home continuous assessment technologies). He leads or has led several longitudinal studies on aging and clinical trials including: The Oregon Brain Aging Study (OBAS), Intelligent Systems for Detection of Aging Changes (ISAAC), the ORCATECH Life Laboratory, Ambient Independence Measures for Guiding Care Transitions, EVALUATE–AD (Ecologically Valid, Ambient, Longitudinal and Unbiased Assessment of Treatment Efficacy in Alzheimer’s Disease), DETECT-AD (Digital Evaluations and Technologies Enabling Clinical Translation for Alzheimer’s Disease), and the Collaborative Aging Research using Technology (CART) Initiative studies, all using pervasive computing and sensing technologies for assessment and interventions. He has served on many national and international panels and boards in the fields of geriatrics, neurology and technology. He is listed in Best Doctors in America. He is an author of over 450 scientific publications and holds several major grant awards from federal agencies, national foundations and industrial sponsors.
