Ageing and Health – Karin Modig's research group

We study how longevity and health change together and in parallel, as well as the overall disease panorama of the ageing population. Our overall goal is to increase knowledge of the ageing process, the evolution of life expectancy in relation to total life expectancy and potential consequences for society. It will ultimately help to inform and prepare policymakers to face the fifth epidemiological transition currently taking place.
