ARISE Networking Events

The ARISE Networking Series is established to provide a platform for interaction and discovery in the field of ageing research by engaging NTU faculty and research staff in pertinent themes relating to ageing. Each session is aligned with one of the Institute’s four research thrusts, and prominent experts from the ministries, industry, healthcare providers and NTU faculty are invited to share their knowledge and expertise.
