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.
Current fRaill research projects
- Trajectories in well-being at older ages
- Change in social detachment in older age in England
- Measuring subjective well-being in later life
- Inequalities in the impact of retirement on health
- A longitudinal comparison of depression in the US and England
- Frailty and Genetics
