Projects Overview

Aging is a natural part of life that brings changes to physical, psychological and social health. Despite the changes being irreversible, there are many ways to enhance the quality of life as we age. With a view to promoting healthy aging, our aim is to develop an understanding of the aging process through the science of aging; engage aging research across disciplines with the implementation of comprehensive strategies for tackling population change and foster healthy aging.
