The Dutch Society for Research on Ageing (DuSRA)
The DuSRA promotes synergy between fundamental and clinical research
Our life expectancy has soared spectacularly in the last two hundred years thanks to improved standards of nutrition, hygiene and medical care. At the same time, there is a large disparity from person to person when it comes to the nature and speed of physiological changes, the loss of function and age-related health risks. Due to the personal nature of ageing, people also respond very differently to interventions focused on healthy ageing and clinical treatment. Innovative research on ageing has been carried out over the last ten years on animal models and people in a broad range of research areas (including cell and system biology, the genome, physiology and lifestyle).
The goal of the DuSRA is to promote synergy between the fundamental and biomedical ageing research being carried out on model organisms and people. By encouraging cooperation between fundamental and clinical researchers, the DuSRA seeks to advance the translation of acquired knowledge into clinical treatments.
The society seeks to:
- advance research into the causes and effects of ageing;
- offer a forum for the discussion of research ideas and new developments in the field of ageing;
- be a point of contact for advice regarding medical and societal questions regarding ageing.
