Rose Anne is also the Director of Trinity EngAGE - the Centre for Research in Ageing at Trinity College, Mercer's Institute for Successful Ageing (MISA) and the Falls and Blackout Unit at St. James's Hospital. Formerly Professor of Geriatric Medicine at the Institute for Ageing & Health, Newcastle upon Tyne in the UK, she has been a world leader in research into cardiovascular and mobility disorders in ageing. Rose Anne has been invited faculty and keynote speaker at many international meetings and societies of geriatric medicine, cardiology, psychiatry and neurology. Rose Anne is widely published over 350 peer reviewed publication, 4 textbooks and 51 book chapters. Her current H-Index is 51, according to SCOPUS bibliometrics (November 2015). Her contribution to science and in particular, the field of ageing, has been recognised by many awards, including the Lady Illingworth Research Award - made once of every five years to researcher who has contributed most to age-related research in the UK, the UK National BUPA Foundation Care Award 'For excellence in the development of care of older people' and NHS Modernization Award among many others. Rose Anne was elected as a Member of the Royal Irish Academy (MRIA) in 2014, the highest academic honour in Ireland and a public recognition of academic excellence and achievement. Professor Kenny is a Fellow of Trinity College Dublin and of the Royal College of Physicians in Ireland, London and Edinburgh.

Research Expertise

Description

Professor Rose Anne Kenny's research interests are in neurocardiovascular function in ageing and cardiovascular and cerebral dysfunction in syncope, falls, cognitive impairment and dementia. Collaborative partnerships range from basic science through to health service development and implementation. She is PI for The Irish LongituDinal Study on Ageing (TILDA), a 10 year long study of over 8,500 participants, unique in its collection of biological, social and economic measures. Professor Kenny's research expertise in cardiovascular and mobility disorders of ageing has promoted incorporation of traditional and novel tests of locomotion, autonomic function and cardiovascular health into TILDA coupled with traditional measures of health care utilisation and economics. Formerly Professor of Cardiovascular Research at the Institute for Ageing & Health, Newcastle upon Tyne in the UK, she is best recognized for longstanding research into cardiovascular and mobility disorders in ageing and more recently population studies in syncope, falls, stroke, cognitive impairment and dementia. The overarching aims of the research programmes are to understand the mechanisms for cardiovascular and cerebral dysfunction in order to develop early diagnostics and intervention strategies for falls, syncope, cognitive impairment and dementia. The research involves collaborative partnership with disciplines from basic science (developing animal modules of cardiovascular and cerebral dysfunction) through to health service development and implementation. Professor Kenny is Head of the academic Department of Medical Gerontology at Trinity College and St. James's Hospital, Director of the Mercer's Institute for Successful Ageing (MISA, Director of the Falls and Blackout Unit at St. James's Hospital and Director of Trinity EngAGE, Trinity College Dublin Centre for Research in Ageing. Prior to present appointment Professor Kenny held the chair of Cardiovascular Research at University of Newcastle, UK where she was head of academic and clinical departments of Medical Gerontology for 12 years.

  • Title
    • TILDA - The Irish Longitudinal Study on Ageing
  • Summary
    • TILDA is a longitudinal community based study which is cross-institutional. Trinity College will be the host institution. All participants (minimum 10,000) will be 55 years and over and will have detailed social, economic and health assessments at Wave 1 and, 5 & 10 years later, Waves 2 and 3. Participants will be drawn randomly from across southern Ireland and, in addition to survey and physical examination, will have blood tests for routine analysis and genetic analysis - all of which will be anonymised according to standard criteria set out by the Medical Research Council. Family Practitioners will be informed of abnormal results from routine examinations and blood samples. TILDA will mirror the methodology of the US Health and Retirement survey and the English Longitudinal Study on Ageing. Lead PI: Rose Anne Kenny, Professor of Clinical Gerontology.

    • Neurocardiovascular influences on cognitive functioning: basic and clinical mechanisms
  • Summary
    • This is a longitudinal study of older persons over 70 years who have mild cognitive impairment. All participants will have non-invasive heart, blood pressure, neurological examinations, MRI head scans, EEG testing and tests of cognitive and mental function. Clinical assessments will take place at St. James's Hospital and in the person's home with the exception of the MRI scans and EEG tests which will take place in the existing facilities at the Trinity College Institute of Neuroscience (TCIN). We plan to study 400 participants over a 5 year period. The objectives are to track the incidence of dementia and cardiovascular and neurological variables which predict conversion to dementia during long term follow up. The study is approved by the St. James's Hospital Ethics Committee & TCIN/Psychology Ethics Committee. In parallel, we will be studying animal (rat) responses to cardiovascular and heart rate challenges to further inform factors which might predict conversion from mild cognitive impairment (i.e. age related memory problems to dementia).

    • The Nilvadipine (Roskamp) study is a 2 year grant to investigate the role of blood pressure and heart rate abnormalities in Alzhiemer's disease and the benefit of blood pressure treatment in Alzheimer's disease. During the course of the study we will investigate 150 patients with Alzhiemer's disease. These will be recruited through the existing structures within St. James's Hospital and our extended care unit and through the Mercer's Institute for Research on Ageing Memory Clinic. The study is sponsored by a not-for-profit neurosciences institute in America - the Roskamp Institute. www.rfdn.org Lead PI: Professor Brian Lawlor, Conolly Norman Professor of Old Age Psychiatry PI: Professor Rose Anne Kenny, Professor of Clinical Gerontology Research Team: Dr. Sean Kennelly, Clinical Research Fellow Lisa Crosby, Clinical Research Nurse Claire Mooney, Clinical Research Nurse Linda Warren, Administrator

    • TRIL - Technology Research for Independent Living
  • Summary
    • TRIL is a virtual centre of expertise and research into improving the health and happiness of older people. TRIL is a collaborative effort combining Intel personnel and researchers from Irish universities and hospitals in multi-disciplinary teams. TRIL focuses on understanding and delivering on the support needs and preferences of older people at home and in care environments. TRIL's mission is to discover and delivery technology solutions which support independent ageing, ideally in a home environment. This will improve the quality of life of older citizens while reducing the burden on carers and on the healthcare system. FALLS STRAND: The fall strand addresses a common source of injury and even death to older persons. It aims to leverage ehtnographic research to characterise proneness to falling in terms of behavioural markers such as cardiovascular variables, visual and vestibular measures, cognitive measures, gait instability and loss of balance, to monitor these markers in real time and to provide feedback to the older person before a fall occurs. The engineering aspects of the falls strand are supported by the Research Commons Platform.
