Advancing clinical research on ageing in Ireland

As the population of the world ages, there is a critical need to integrate research on aging into the medical training of clinicians. The goal of this program is to provide research development, training, and mentoring to physician-scientists in the newly established Master's of Medical Gerontology program at Trinity College Dublin.

Projects are directed toward advancing research on aging by:

  1. incorporating the needs of the Irish government into research conducted by the Department via a scoping review;
  2. teaching a course on grantwriting skills;
  3. launching a clinical scholars seminar; and
  4. enhancing ancillary studies to the Irish Longitudinal Study of Ageing.
