Institute for Health & Ageing

Through innovative research we address practical issues of health and wellbeing


Our aim is through innovative research to address practical issues of health and wellbeing throughout the lifespan.

Most importantly, we focus on improving the lives of older people and those who support them in a range of settings, including acute and hospital care, residential care and in the community.

We apply our multidisciplinary expertise to national and international competitive grants and research projects to advance the study of positive ageing.

The Institute helps develop early interventions by way of tools, programs and other resources to advance positive ageing for individuals and the community more broadly.

IHA delivers a positive and productive learning environment for research students, postdoctoral and early career researchers.
