This project aims to determine the genetic and environmental risk factors for structural and functional changes observed in the ageing brain. There are opportunities to develop novel statistical algorithms to explore the complex interplay of genetic and environmental factors on the ageing brain.
Extensive participant level data and biomaterials from CHeBA's longitudinal cohorts and major international consortia are available for integrated analyses, providing opportunities for high-level statistical analyses, neuroimaging and use of genomics/epigenomics/ proteomics/lipidomics technologies to potentially transform the fields of epidemiology and biomarkers for dementia and longevity.
Using existing, large-scale studies of older adults, this project will investigate the hierarchical structure of psychiatric illness and its relationship with neurobiology. This project has the potential to significantly impact public health by informing prevention and intervention efforts focused on reducing psychiatric illness in older adults.
