Historical information on Healthy Ageing Research

In mid-2001, the Ageing Research Working Committee (a sub Committee of SRDC) commissioned a scoping study to provide an overview of the key research findings on the biology of ageing and to provide an analysis of the current and potential use of this knowledge.

Call for Expressions of Interest

In mid-2001, the Ageing Research Working Committee (a sub Committee of SRDC) commissioned a scoping study to provide an overview of the key research findings on the biology of ageing and to provide an analysis of the current and potential use of this knowledge. The scoping study highlighted a range of gaps in current research, and to cover these gaps, the SRDC is calling for a broad range of research across the following areas:

  1. Strategic Research - addressing dementia, neurodegenerative disorders, musculoskeletal disorders, mental health or wound healing
  2. Developmental Research - including geriatric pharmacology or nutrition
  3. Fundamental Research - addressing the genetics of human ageing, oxidative stress or mitochondrial dysfunction
  4. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Research - issues relevant to ageing and premature death in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples

Total funding of up to $2 million over three years is available for projects researching the biomedical and psychosocial aspects of healthy ageing.
