Organisation profile

We take a multidisciplinary approach to successful ageing by asking how technological, therapeutic and psychosocial strategies can be employed to understand and arrest age-related decline.

Our mission is to facilitate research that helps understand, predict and prevent age-related degeneration. We have a specific focus on the eye, the mind, the metabolism and medicines and devices in the context of the psychological, social and policy factors affecting ageing lives.
