What’s Next for Ageing Research?

Posted on 21 May 2020

Ageing is the most significant driver of many conditions and chronic diseases – Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, heart disease, diabetes and many more. The world’s population is getting older, and the burden of age-related disease on healthcare services and society as a whole will only increase in the coming years. Here, the US’s National Institute on Ageing lays out their broad goals for advancing the field of ageing research over the next 5 years.

Understanding the Dynamics of the Aging Process

Goal A: Better understand the biology of aging and its impact on the prevention, progression, and prognosis of disease and disability.

Goal B: Better understand the effects of personal, interpersonal, and societal factors on aging, including the mechanisms through which these factors exert their effects.
