Manchester Institute for Collaborative Research on Ageing


The fRaill project makes use of data provided by the English Longitudinal Study of Ageing (ELSA) to develop measures of frailty and wellbeing, model life-course trajectories, including life events, examine relationships with socioeconomic position, examine genetic influences and their relationship with markers of metabolic processes, test gene-environment interactions, and identify characteristics related to resilience and vulnerability in the face of adverse events.
