Congratulations to Dr Farah Shiraz, Senior Post Doctoral Fellow, on receiving the 2017 Robert L. Kane Research Award at the 21st IAGG World Congress of Gerontology and Geriatrics held on 23 – 27 July 2017 in San Francisco, USA.

The award is named after the late Dr Robert Kane who was one of the world's leading researchers on ageing and inspired the creation of EASYCare 28 years ago.

Dr Shiraz gave an oral presentation on the development of a Risk Screening tool created in Singapore, which helps assess biological, psychological and social health risk of the older population. Dr Farah Shiraz and Dr Zoe Hildon's research was chosen from among 100 abstracts submitted for the award and was selected by Dr Rosalie Kane, a scholar in ageing research and wife of the late Dr Robert Kane. Dr Rosalie Kane believed that Dr Shiraz' work was a great example of the future direction of ageing research.
