The University of Birmingham and The First Affiliated Hospital, Sun Yat-sen University (FAH-SYSU) have formed a partnership to establish the International Institute for Healthy Ageing.

As part of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed, the partners aim to address the challenges associated with ageing by conducting multidisciplinary research, providing vocational training, and offering professional education to healthcare professionals.

The partnership will focus on translating research findings into practical applications and nurturing scientific talents in developing countries.

University of Birmingham principal and vice-chancellor professor Adam Tickell said: “Signing this agreement continues our long-standing and fruitful partnership.

“China and the wider world face a major challenge in ageing populations – our partnership could help to secure a healthy old age for millions of people in China and beyond.”

The partnership between FAH-SYSU and the University of Birmingham dates back to 2013, when they collaborated on projects related to primary care, clinical trials, global epidemiology, and geriatrics, resulting in achievements such as the FAH-SYSU – University of Birmingham Joint Clinical Trials Unit.
