The 45 and Up Study is Australia’s largest ongoing study of health and ageing, made possible thanks to the contribution of our 250,000 NSW participants.

The Study is a world-class resource that is helping researchers better understand how Australians are ageing, and the factors that promote good health and wellbeing.

Study partners

The 45 and Up Study is managed by the Sax Institute in collaboration with major partner Cancer Council NSW; and partners: the Heart Foundation; NSW Ministry of Health; NSW Department of Communities and Justice; and Australian Red Cross Lifeblood.

Our partners are critical to the ongoing success of the Study and they have invested in it because they see the value of the Study to Australians and the research community. They are using the Study in a diverse range of projects from cardiovascular research to potentially preventable hospitalisations. We welcome interest from organisations interested in being a part of the project.
