NWO funding for extended LASA measurements

The Dutch Organization for Scientific Research (NWO) has awarded several tons of funding to the Longitudinal Aging Study Amsterdam (LASA), led by Dr. Martijn Huisman (EMGO+), for more frequent research into Dutch elderly in the upcoming years. For the past decades, the LASA study has performed repeated measurements every three years. As changes in health and functioning can proceed rapidly in the older population above age 80, a shorter period of time between the measurements for this group is of great importance to monitor the aging process accurately.
