AGING
PROJECT

Facing the challenge of longevity,
through research, education
and public engagement

THE AGING PROJECT

The AGING Project is a project of excellence launched by the Department of Translational Medicine at the Università del Piemonte Orientale (UPO), aimed to provide effective solutions to the emerging scientific and social challenges brought by aging. This project rests on four main pillars: i) interdisciplinary approach, ii) bench-to-bedside research, iii) support to research and education, and iv) public engagement.

HEALTH PROFESSIONALS

RESEARCH

We bring together internationally renowned researchers from different disciplines to provide answers to open questions related to aging mechanisms and age-related diseases so that we can improve our understanding of the social and personal impact of aging, and develop effective strategier and action plans for healthy aging and elderly care.

WHY DO WE GET OLDER?

Age-related diseases

THE BURDEN OF LIVING WITH A DISEASE OR DISABILITY

PREVENTION AND TREATMENT PATHWAYS

Education

We share all our newly acquired knowledge on aging by implementing educational and training programs for post-graduate, senior researchers and health or non-health professionals. Our solutions consist of a range of interdisciplinary paths encompassing the scientific, health, economic, sociological, ethical and legal fields..

Funding Opportunities
