Testing interventions to delay ageing and age-related disorders in preclinical models is resource intense and require specialised expertise. In the USA the NIA has established the Intervention programme which tests interventions in 3 sites in a standardised way but it is reserved to NIH funded investigators.
The MouseAge network is performing a scoping exercise to determine: 1. Which infrastructures are already present in Europe and could become part of a larger network of collaborating facilities, open to other investigators in Europe to facilitate them in performing preclinical testing of interventions in a standardised way.
2. What are the infrastructures which would accelerate research progress in the area of preclinical intervention for ageing and age-related diseases.
Please take 5 minutes to respond to this questionnaire. We would ask that responses are submitted by 15th January 2016.
