Professor Leon Flicker

As the inaugural Professor of Geriatric Medicine at UWA, Leon Flicker's position is testament to the fact that the aging population is of growing concern to Australia.

But according to the Professor, growing old is not an automatic ticket to infirmary and dependence. Instead it can be an opportunity for growth and development.

This research covers a range of subjects relevant to ageing and age-related diseases or health issues such as dementia, depression and falls.
