Identify relevant risk factors and predictors for Healthy Ageing
By following groups of unselected individuals or specific patients over the life span (cohorts), and investigating their risk factors for incidence of disease and disease complications, or absence of disease, we will identify relevant risk factors and predictors for Healthy Ageing
We aim to develop, improve and disseminate advanced methodology and apply these methods in future research projects to data from large UMCG population based cohorts such as:
- Vlaardingen – Vlagtwedde,
- Pregnancy Anxiety and Depression study,
With this focus, our activities are attributable to “prevention” research, which is next to “mechanisms of diseases” and “innovative treatments” one of the research pillars of the overarching UMCG theme “Healthy Aging”.
