Our multidisciplinary health and social sciences research is about living to age well and ageing to live well. Our work targets the evidence base underpinning practices, programs and policies that affect the health and well-being of older people whether they live in their own homes, with family, in residential care or elsewhere.
We value our connections with individuals, communities and organisations across Canberra, regionally, nationally and internationally. Discover more about our news, events and opportunities.
Our people come from a wide range of disciplines across clinical, social, and biomedical sciences. Here’s information about our researchers, clinicians, PhD and Honours students.
Our research projects focus on aged care services and workforce; health services; support and care for people living with dementia; assistive, digital, and smart sensing technology; and the risk factors associated with cognitive and physical health at older ages. Here’s a summary of our projects.
UC with Curtin University, Edith Cowan University and the University of Wollongong are working together to boost our professional nursing workforce to care for older people.
We are happy to share our research and are keen to work with others with an interest in ageing – whether organisations, researchers or community members.
