Description of the group
The focus of the Department of Gerontology and Geriatrics is on elderly people. Within the department patient care, scientific research, and education are well integrated. Elderly patients are being treated by consultants geriatrics. All research is aimed at unravelling the processes of ageing and the co-occurence of ageing and disease. Moreover, the department participates in the medical and biomedical curriculum of Leiden University and hosts the training for geriatricians.
