MILD COGNITIVE IMPAIRMENT; DEMENTIA; DELIRIUM
Brain health is more than just the absence of disease. A healthy brain is capable of learning, recalling, and planning tasks. Our research helps to understand how we can optimize brain health as we age.
OSTEOPOROSIS; FALLS & FRACTURES PREVENTION
Bones play many roles in the body — providing structure, protecting organs, anchoring muscles, and storing calcium. It is important to build strong and healthy bones. We lead research and guidelines on osteoporosis, falls and fracture prevention.
Resilience & Frailty
SARCOPENIA; MOBILITY; MEDICATION OPTIMIZATION
Frailty is a medical condition of reduced function and health in older adults. Physical inactivity, poor nutrition, and social isolation, and multiple medications contribute to frailty. When you are frail the body has less resilience to bounce back from illness. We are leading in new models of geriatric care and clinical interventions.
Innovation & Technology
MEDICAL DEVICES; DIGITAL HEALTHCARE APPS
The Geras Centre for Aging Research provides a real-life environment where we can work together with patients, families, researchers, and community industry partners to co-create and test innovative solutions to improve patient care and quality of life.
