Type of institution
The Ageing Research Center (ARC) is an independent multidisciplinary research center in which both the medical university Karolinska Institutet (KI) and Stockholm University (SU) are collaborating. ARC was established in 2000 as a result of an initiative the Swedish Council for Social Research, the predecessor of the Swedish Council for Working Life and Social Research (FAS). FAS has supplied the basic economical support equally matched by KI and SU during a first three-year period followed by a second triennium after a scientific evaluation. The administration of the center is placed at the Division of Geriatric Epidemiology, Department of Neurotec, Karolinska Institute.
The primary goals of ARC are to:
● Advance multidisciplinary efforts in research on ageing
● Offer graduate students high quality education in a stimulating environment
● Foster collaboration with ageing researchers in Sweden and abroad
● Develop cross-links between available data sets
●Direct the acquired knowledge into interventions.
Main research areas
ARC carries out epidemiological studies on different health related aspects of brain ageing and the elderly. First, health is approached from a broad perspective, including medical/physical, psychological, and social health. Second, ARC applies lifetime perspecticve for healthy ageing. Specifically, ARC studies the influence of lifetime exposure to environmental, social and biological factors on functioning and health in late adulthood, given also specific genetic predisposition. Both current and past exposures to potential determinants are considered, as well as the cumulative effect due to the chain of events that old individuals have experienced during life. ARC can achieve these aims thanks to the availability of several major population-based databases (incl Kungsholmen Project, SWEOLD Project, SNACK Study, Betula Project, Harmony Project).
