Developing a better understanding of age-related neurodegenerative diseases

The Ageing Epidemiology (AGE) Research Unit is part of the School of Public Health at Imperial College, based across the Charing Cross Hospital and White City campuses. The Unit is headed by Professor Miia Kivipelto.

What we do

The common aim of projects within the department is to better understand risk and protective factors for neurodegenerative diseases of ageing (including AlzheimerAdvanced epidemiology course on dementia prevention’s disease and Parkinson’s disease) on a population level, and in turn inform methods for early prediction and prevention.
