Identifying relevant risk factors and predictors for healthy ageing
The LCE activities support prevention research. The LCE team investigates risk factors for disease and disease complications, as well as predisposing factors for absence of disease, by following groups of non-selected individuals or selected patients throughout life (cohorts). Based on these data, the LCE can identify relevant risk factors and predictors for healthy ageing. This unique knowledge offers interesting opportunities for the development of prevention strategies.
The LCE researchers aim to develop, improve, and disseminate advanced methods and use these in future research projects to handle data from large, University Medical Center Groningen (UMCG) population-based, cohorts such as:
