This year’s 45 and Up Study Annual Forum explored future possibilities for the Study: how researchers and decision makers can use this national treasure in innovative ways to address pressing health challenges.

The keynote address was given by Professor Ian Frazer AC, world-renowned immunologist, chair of the Advisory Board for the Federal Government’s Medical Research Future Fund and former Australian of the Year.

Other plenary sessions announced bold plans to collect blood samples from 45 and Up Study participants, and a vision for how genetic data could help shed light on disease associations.
