The Healthy Ageing pillar brings to Singapore JCU’s established excellence in public health, healthcare and support services providing an important opportunity for aged care industry stakeholders and the health sector to contribute to the development of strategies, innovation and investment that benefit healthy aging processes in the tropics.
Healthy aging begins at birth and the life decisions we make as individuals, families, and societies affect how we age and the needs we have. With every country in the world experiencing growth in both the size and the proportion of older persons in the population, JCU has a clear commitment to finding solutions for a better future.
To view global leaders speaking on current research on healthy ageing matters, check out our recorded webinar series here.
Prof Andreas Lopata presented “Shellfish allergy - from Mollusk to Crustacean” at the Good Food Institute (GFI) seminar with Singaporean company Shiok Meats. Watch the workshop recording here.
The Good Food Institute (GFI) is a non-profit organisation developing the roadmap for sustainable, secure, and just production of food for the growing world population. Cultivated meat, plant-based products, and fermentation offer exciting opportunities for the production of sustainable food proteins with tremendous positive impacts for the climate and global health.
Singapore is a research leader on the sustainable production of protein. The Singapore Food Agency (SFA) became the first national regulator in the world to ‘green light’ the sale of a cultivated meat product. Local companies are leading the establishment of cell-based seafood and, through the TFI, JCUS is supporting this movement for the production of healthy and safe alternative proteins.
