The Centre for Research on Ageing, Health & Wellbeing (CRAHW) was established in 2012. It is a research intensive centre located within the Research School of Population Health (RSPH) at The Australian National University (ANU).
CRAHW aims to optimise the wellbeing of individuals and communities through the life course 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, and healthy ageing. 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 (CEPAR), an NHMRC Dementia Collaborative Research Centre – Early Diagnosis and Prevention (DCRC-EDP), and the NHMRC Centre of Research Excellence in Cognitive Health.
Our research, education and learning is supported by the skills and expertise of our academic faculty, visitors and adjunct members, students and professional staff.
