Lifespan Research Theme

Reproductive, Maternal and Child Health and Healthy Ageing researchers are joining forces under the Lifespan umbrella

We are pleased to announce the launch of the new Lifespan Research theme in Sydney Medical School which will merge our Reproductive Maternal and Child Health theme with the Healthy Ageing theme. The Lifespan theme will aim to facilitate a whole of life approach to research within SMS and provide the opportunity to join with lifespan-related researchers across the University to create a Lifespan research community.
