Dr Vibeke Catts is the Study Coordinator of the Older Australian Twins Study (OATS), a longitudinal study aiming to determine the genetic and environmental influences on the ageing process, and the extent to which these determinants interact. OATS participants are assessed across multiple research domains: neuropsychological assessment of cognitive function, questionnaires detailing lifestyle, physical and mental health of self and family, blood biochemistry and genetics, and neuroimaging including MRI and PET scans. The study participates in several global consortia and supports the work of several research students at UNSW Sydney.

Dr Catts provides research management to the Centre for Healthy Brain Ageing (CHeBA), including guidance on research governance and liaison with relevant regulatory bodies.
