The laboratory’s research focuses on studying, in elderly and very elderly subjects (those aged over 80, and centenarians), both the clinical epidemiology of the most common diseases, with a particular focus on dementia, and the analysis of the coexistence of different diseases and disorders and their connection to ageing.
The methodological skills employed range from the design and management of population studies and clinical trials to the analysis of large health databases.
- study protective factors for healthy ageing
- integrate different data sources to obtain more accurate predictions about the health of older individuals
Evaluation of the health status and prevalence of diagnosis and disability in elderly and very elderly subjects (those aged over 80, and centenarians), with a particular focus on dementia and its personal, familial and social consequences
Promotion and carrying out, also in collaboration with local health agencies, of studies on the impact of pharmacological interventions and the promotion of lifestyles
Integration of data on and experiences of the conditions of elderly subjects in different IRCCS settings (general populations, hospitalised, institutionalised, with specific pathologies)
Design and execution of secondary analyses on large databases collected for administrative and/or clinical purposes
