This cross-cutting theme draws on experimental medicine expertise in our other five research themes to help us to improve the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of ageing syndromes.
We improve the lives of people living with dementia by understanding more about the causes, treatments and potential cures, with a particular focus on Dementia with Lewy Bodies.
We approach liver disease research as an independent discipline to enhance our understanding of causes, therapies and potential cures, but we also examine how it co-exists with other chronic conditions.
We are committed to improving the treatments and outcomes for patients with musculoskeletal disease via a combination of scientific translational and clinical research.
We apply our well-established methods in the areas of neuromuscular and mitochondrial research to explore the mechanisms underlying the cause of sarcopenia in older people.
We are focused on research in to inflammatory, long-term skin and oral conditions, with a view to understanding the progress of these diseases and to generate new diagnostics and therapeutics.
Multimorbidity is one of the biggest challenges currently facing the UK healthcare system and patients.
We are committed to training the next generation of researchers and clinicians specialising in the care of older people.
We offer facilities for experimental medicine, technology platforms and core support services, alongside the translational biomedical research embedded in our research themes.
