The scope of this call is in the following specific topic areas only:
- Age-related effects of diet on bacteria and gut health – Discovering how interactions between nutrition, the gut microbiota and host tissues influence health in later life
- Ageing bladder and bowel – The underpinning biology and physiology of the ageing bladder and bowel, and the maintenance of homeostasis and function throughout the lifecourse
- Age-related changes in circadian rhythms and sleep – How the ageing process affects circadian/biological rhythms and sleep, and implications for health and wellbeing in later life
- Understanding the mechanisms by which physical activity and sedentary behaviour effect the ageing process across the lifecourse and impact on health in later life
