Assistant Programme Manager, Health Lab
Alice will be focussing on Digital Health projects, new technologies, and ways we can create and use data to empower people to improve their health and wellbeing.
Alice will be working on two innovation funds in partnership with the Scottish Government including the Healthier Lives Data Fund, a project applying collective intelligence to cancer and developing a new programme looking at the implications of digital technology in social care.
Prior to Nesta, Alice worked for a Digital Health startup in Singapore that aimed to improve the management of Type 2 Diabetes by tracking and analysing key pieces of patient data through a smartphone app. Before that, she worked within the innovation team at Virgin Care and was involved in a variety of projects from telehealth for long-term conditions to text messaging for school nurses.
