We aim to address emerging health issues associated with an aging population worldwide through clinical research and health technologies.  

Alzheimer’s image

Our scientists race against time to conduct breakthrough research that can help us advance our understanding of how the brain functions, providing important clues for developing innovative therapies to curb Alzheimer’s disease.

Parkinson’s and ALS image

The discoveries of the mechanism of axon regeneration and the role of a new protein in delaying the degradation of damaged nerves offer hope to patients with spinal cord injuries such as Parkinson’s disease and Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS).

Sound Advance in Hearing Aids image

A faculty-student team has developed a cost-effective intelligent hearing aid, which allows the elderly and the hearing-impaired to selectively reduce annoying background noise and costs only one-tenth the price of similar products in the market.

Smart Wheelchairs image

An autonomous all-terrain wheelchair equipped with sensors is designed for the elderly to navigate in complex environments and avoid obstacles based on the surrounding 3D information.

Healthcare Operations image

We conduct operations and decision analytics research in the hope of improving healthcare operational efficiency across the elderly care continuum, resulting in better care for the elderly and a more efficient workflow for care providers.
