The Research Institute for Ageing and Health (RIAH) is the center for health care innovations in the university in the field of gerontology. It envisions to promote the ability of the ageing population to cope with and adapt to a dynamically changing environment through knowledge generation and health care innovations.
RIAH has two divisions: (1) Division for Theoretical and Clinical Studies on Gerontology and (2) Division for Translational Actions on Gerontology. The institute will develop and validate new gerontology care frameworks, generate and publish articles in ISI or Scopus-indexed journals and produce patents on innovative technologies. Furthermore, aims to assist the University in capacitating the regular faculty in health care research, establish partnership/linkages with other organizations and funding agencies and create a Gerontology Resource Center (GRC) and consultancy/expert services on gerontology.
RIAH is under the direct supervision of the Vice President for Research, Extension and Publication (VP-REP) and is managed by the Institute Director with division chair/s, core faculty researchers and an office staff.
