Rapid increase in the world's older population has brought outstanding opportunities for interdisciplinary research on the biological, clinical, social, technological, economic and other factors associated with this 'demographic transition'.

The Institute for Ageing and Health was set up in 1994 to address these needs and brings together basic, clinical and social scientists in research on ageing, age-related disorders, and the health and welfare of older people.
