Dr Donncha Mullin has been selected as the winner of the 2022 EFPT Porto Research Award for his study “Mechanisms of motoric cognitive risk: hypotheses based on a systematic review and meta-analysis of longitudinal cohort studies of older adults”. In this research, recently published in the very high impact journal Alzheimer’s & Dementia, it was reported that Motoric Cognitive Risk is quick, practical, and simple to measure, and it was found that it has considerable prognostic value for dementia, cognitive impairment, falls and mortality.
