About this research theme

Health across the Human Life Cycle

Research in this profile theme addresses health, cognitive functioning, disease and wellbeing throughout the life cycle. By studying the complex interplay between genes and environment, and the working of the brain over the life span, we aim to provide the tools for the early diagnosis and prevention of diseases and psycho-social problems, and for lifelong cognitive, emotional and physical enhancement, resulting in medical literacy and healthy ageing across the population.
