Ageing Research

Trinity scientists and clinicians are at the forefront of the drive to understand some of the most challenging diseases prevalent in an ageing population, including Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and Motor Neurone Disease. We’re working to identify causes, improve our defences and ultimately, discover cures.

Inspiring Generations will support a range of research projects in this area. The two flagship projects are:

  • The Irish Longitudinal Study on Ageing (TILDA) which is a broad-scale study on ageing in Ireland at a national level, with the overarching aim to make Ireland the best place in the world to grow old.

  • Global Brain Health Institute (GBHI), which works to reduce the scale and impact of dementia in three ways: by training and connecting the next generation of leaders in brain health; by collaborating in expanding preventions and interventions; and by sharing knowledge and engaging in advocacy.
