We are an innovative, diverse, multidisciplinary research group committed to empowering older people to live better lives by:

  1. Delivering a translational portfolio of research in ageing, with a focus on Parkinson’s and neurodegenerative diseases.
  2. Applying robust mixed methodology in clinical trials, epidemiological studies, and education research.
  3. Adopting a patient-centred approach and actively engaging with the community.

Our Vision

We aspire to be a world-leading centre for ageing, that pioneers innovative science through attracting and investing in the best researchers around the world.

  2. EXCELLENCE – We promote academic excellence with an ambitious, creative, and adaptable approach.
  3. DIVERSITY – Our approachable team brings a range of backgrounds, perspectives, and expertise, who value each-others’ input and nurture individual and group development.
  4. COLLABORATION – We are a dynamic multidisciplinary team who engage with participants to co-design research, and conduct outreach with the public and third-sector organisations globally.
