1 Plan for the coming years VELUX FONDEN - D A N I S H A G I N G R E S E A R C H C E N T E R - Why do we age so differently?

2 General plans  To finalize Copenhagen Aging and Midlife Biobank (CAMB)  2010 The Metropolit Part of CAMB finalized  2011 All data on CAMB have been collected,documented and made ready for analyses  2011 Data from CAMB has been linked to relevant registers  To develop plans for DARC-projects using data from CAMB  To develop collaborative studies between Center for Healthy Aging and DARC

3 New projects on early aging signs - DARC  Association between unexplained fatigue and biomarkers  How does mitochondrial function relate to unexplained fatigue? (extension of ongoing study –Copenhagen – Aarhus)  Association between social class and biomarkers  How does mitochondrial function relate to social class? (extension of ongoing study –Copenhagen – Aarhus)  New study on the relations between unexplained fatigue and oxidative stress in midlife  Collaboration between CESA, CAMB and DARC  (V. Bohr, T. Stevnsner, M.Osler, E.L.Mortensen, K.Avlund)  Using data from CAMB (outliers on fatigue)

4 Which genetic and environmental factors affect functional capacity and lifespan?  New projects in relation to A.Ekmann’s Ph.D.-study  Which health and environmental factors affect unexplained fatigue in midlife ?  How do socioeconomic position and social relations influence unexplained fatigue in midlife?

5 Socioeconomic position Familiar factors (genetics and rearing environment) Ageing (longevity, chronic disease) Sibling cohort study- linking family database-to health and social registers in Statistics Denmark New PhD-study/post doc? Social status and telomeres in a longitudinal design (MONICA cohort) How important are familial factors for social differences in lifespan?

6 Socioeconomic Position Cognitive funtion (IQ) Familiar factors (genetics and rearing environment) Ageing (cognition, longevity) Twin register and cohorts- linked to health, conscript database and social registers in Statistics Denmark How important are familial factors for social differences in lifespan?
