The Centre for Education and Research on Ageing (CERA) is Australia�s premier academic organization for the study of ageing and age-related diseases. Through innovative and multidisciplinary research, CERA aims to expand and share knowledge of human ageing, so that the health and quality of life of older people can be improved.

Our research is achieved through a broad program that incorporates clinical, laboratory, epidemiological and health service evaluation approaches. Allied to this are education programs, at basic and advanced levels of practice, in geriatric medicine and other education programs for aged care workers from a range of professional settings.

CERA is a joint facility of The University of Sydney, Department of Medicine and Concord Repatriation General Hospital, a teaching hospital within Sydney South West Area Health Service. CERA is located at Concord Repatriation General Hospital, in the inner west of Sydney, Australia.

The Ageing and Alzheimer’s Research Foundation (AARF) is a Division of the Medical Foundation of the University of Sydney. AARF raises funds to support research and education conducted by CERA.


CERA's aim is to expand and share knowledge of human ageing through collaborative, multidisciplinary research and education with the purposes of:

promoting healthy ageing;

minimising the impact of disease and disability on older people;

improving the quality of life of our older population.
