Research on Ageing
The Sheffield Institute for Studies on Ageing (SISA) is engaged in and develops a wide range of multi-disciplinary research both across the university and within the core academic group itself.
The information in this section is split into the following categories:
- Research fields
- Funding grants
- Postgraduate and PhD
The core academic group has published widely on many different aspects of gerontology and to date has attracted a substantial amount of research funding.
SISA has developed postgraduate teaching and training programmes in gerontology and delivers undergraduate teaching in geriatric medicine.
SISA staff offers administrative support in the development and management of large-scale research projects and programmes including those funded by the European Union. They also support visiting academics and researchers and postgraduate research activity.
In addition, the cross-University executive group organises diverse research-orientated workshops and seminars and an annual public lecture programme including the Marjorie Coote Memorial Lecture.
The Institute also draws together a faculty of 50 researchers from over 20 departments with interests in ageing.
