Advisory Board on Healthy Ageing

The Advisory Board on Healthy Ageing advises the scientists at the CHA on questions concerning the relevance of research for an ageing population and patients in old age. In particular, it gives advice, e.g. on the research fields of the centre, the study designs and their suitability for the elderly as well as the relevance of the defined outcomes in clinical studies. The Advisory Board also helps to bring the CHA into contact with other organisations, networks and groups of elderly people and their representatives.
