The place for leaders and innovators in ageing-related research
We’re creating a community of researchers into the understanding of ageing and treatment of age-related disease and evidence-informed community-facing organisations delivering and developing evidence-led services, products and interventions that improve our experience of later life.
We’re an inclusive body of researchers, clinicians and third sector professionals working across the disciplinary and professional range. Our aims are to:
- Celebrate success, achievement and ambition in ageing-related research.
- Encourage the key principles and behaviours we wish to encourage and uphold in ageing-related research.
- Showcase innovative work.
- Facilitate better understanding and foster relationships between the academic and clinical researchers and community organisations working with older people.
- Create a supportive place to find new collaborators, mentors and advisors and to sustain nascent networks for the longer term.
The Academy will be what you, the members, make it. The more who join, the more useful it will be. If you have ideas for events, training and web content, do please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
