Improving our understanding of the immunology of ageing

About this network

With an increasingly ageing population, further understanding of the changes to the immune system throughout life could help to identify new routes to support ageing populations to experience healthier lives for longer. The CARINA Network seeks to achieve this by bringing together researchers and experts specialising in a wide rage of areas related to ageing and working in variety of sectors including medical, immunology, nutrition, industry and charity sectors.

Our overarching aim is to establish an innovative network, CARINA, that will build an outstanding interdisciplinary community of researchers, at different career stages, to advance the integrated understanding of the factors influencing the trajectory to an aged, compromised immune system.
