The Centre for Ageing Research and Development in Ireland has announced the appointment of five post-doctoral Fellows in a £1million investment to develop future leaders in research on ageing and older people.
The CARDI Fellows, four at Queen's University Belfast and one at Trinity College Dublin, will carry out research over the next three years into ageing issues with the aim of improving the lives of older people across the island of Ireland.
New CARDI Fellows
The new CARDI Fellows, announced at the inaugural meeting of the CARDI Leadership Programme in Ageing Research in Belfast (Monday 15 Sept 2014) are: Joanne Feeney, Joanna McHugh, Charlotte Neville and Mark O'Doherty, who will be based in Queen's University Belfast, and Aisling O'Halloran based in Trinity College Dublin.
