Join us online at the joint CACW and BioNet Conference.

The CACW centres of multidisciplinary researchers and the BioNet Group, focused on clinical practice and translation, are joining together to present this year’s conference with the themes of Dementia Risk Reduction and the Social and Emotional Wellbeing of Older Adults.

The Centre for Ageing, Cognition, and Wellbeing (CACW) in the Faculty of Medicine, Health and Human Sciences at Macquarie University is a collaborative group of multidisciplinary researchers with interest in the normal and abnormal aspects of ageing.

This includes research related to understanding and improving wellbeing related to neurodegenerative diseases, mental disorders, and health related conditions in the community and residential aged care.

BioNetwork's mission is to expand the links between research and clinical medicine specialties, with a special interest in Macquarie University’s health priorities. In line with this mission, it is well-timed to be during the decade 2020-2030 identified as the ‘decade of healthy ageing’.

This year, BioNetwork’s aim is to provide opportunities for sharing knowledge in the Ageing research field and promote research programs with strong relevance to practice and to age gracefully, while ensuring the wellbeing of individuals.

Our annual conference is a wonderful opportunity to learn more about the latest research from our members and students, plus hear from some exciting keynote speakers.
