Geriatrics (research)

The Geriatrics department hosts two research lines: ‘Acute Geriatric Care’ led by prof. Bianca Buurman and ‘Personalized Falls and Fracture Prevention’ led by prof. Nathalie van der Velde.

Our ambition is to improve clinical care for older persons by performing translational and clinical studies with interdisciplinary research groups. Implementation of our research findings into clinical practice is an important part of our mission.
