Africa Aging Research Directory

Comments Off

logo-ISOADPublished on November 18, 2015:

Currently the WHO Aging Research Directory for Africa is being updated (the latest update was in 2003). All types of aging research are being included, yet hopefully the updated version will include a stronger emphasis on the biological and biomedical research of aging and longevity.

If you know of researchers of aging in Africa or related to Africa, especially involved in biomedical and biological research of aging and longevity, their contact information, or can help connect with them, please let know.

Here is the Africa Aging Research Directory from 2003 that is now being updated.

This can be a wonderful opportunity to strengthen aging and longevity research in Africa, as:

1) It can emphasize the place of Africa in the WHO aging health care agenda.

2) Help the recognition, networking and collaboration of aging researchers in Africa and in relation to Africa.

3) Can strengthen the role of biomedical and biological research of aging in the entire WHO agenda.

Thank you for your help in this important project – strengthening aging research in Africa!
