Discoveries that lead to improving lives

The Western Australian Centre for Health and Ageing (WACHA) is a leading education and clinical studies centre that has redefined ageing research in Western Australia. Our researchers continue to discover innovative cures and treatments to advance the health of people in midlife and beyond.

Launched in 2000 with the goal of improving the health of people as they age, WACHA brings together experts, researchers, clinicians and students, empowering them to identify and solve the most critical challenges in health research.

Our researchers are internationally recognised as leaders in their field. They work to extend healthy lives, prevent the onset of disabling illnesses, find better ways to treat diseases common among older people and improve the delivery of health services.
