Our research mission is to expand and strengthen our expertise and focus on the advancement of excellence in health care governance and planning for the ageing and older person.

With a long and well established history in ageing research, and strong relations with the Mercer’s Institute for Research in Ageing, the Department of Gerontology is currently involved in a diverse range of research projects. These research programmes will enable health professionals and academics to consider the full range of activities and aspects that affect and shape the ageing process as well as deliver new ways to advance the concept of successful ageing and promote preventative health care.
