Welcome

Established in 2012, the Centre for Research on Ageing, Health & Wellbeing (CRAHW) is a research intensive centre located within the Research School of Population Health.

CRAHW aims to optimise the well-being of individuals and communities through the lifecourse by conducting innovative and translational research and contributing to public policy.  We work in methodological and theoretical traditions drawn from psychology, sociology and epidemiology that focus on adult development and ageing. The centre has particular expertise in cognitive ageing and dementia, psychiatric epidemiology, neuroimaging, social gerontology, healthy ageing and substance use.  Our work involves conducting and analysing large-scale epidemiological studies as well as intervention studies.  CRAHW hosts a node of the ARC Centre of Excellence in Population Ageing Research and a Dementia Collaborative Research Centre.  

CRAHW comprises academics, visitors and adjunct members, students and administrative staff.
