In current (geriatric) practice, patients are assessed by use of physical performance measures to determine their physical status. Little is known about the pathophysiology of physical decline during ageing and the contribution of biological pathways involved in ageing.
In this project you will make use of the unique longitudinal EMPOWER-GR cohort linking biological markers of ageing (senescence, inflammation, proteostasis) to the clinical physical phenotype of individuals suffering from a range of age related diseases. The analysis will be based on crossectional as well as longitudinal data.
Prerequisite: biomedical background and preferable lab skills, basic epidemiological/statistical skills, capacity to work in a multidisciplinary team, passion to unravel the ageing process.
