Description

New futures: innovative uses for Australia's largest cohort study

The Sax Institute's 45 and Up Study is already a bedrock of high-quality research and an important source of answers for decision makers in health. But what's next for Australia's largest study? What new possibilities does it offer to help us grapple with an ageing population and other future health challenges?

Join us at this year's 45 and Up Study Annual Forum to discuss how we can use this national research treasure in innovative ways: from the untapped potential of genomics research, to building new collaborations and busting silos across the research spectrum, and using the growing possibilities in linked data research to drive better integrated healthcare.

We are excited to welcome world-renowned immunologist, chair of the Federal Government's Medical Research Future Fund and former Australian of the Year, Professor Ian Frazer AC as our keynote speaker. We also look forward to a panel discussion on future directions featuring Australian research leaders and showcasing research projects currently using the Study to investigate a wide range of health challenges.
