Professor Andrea Maier (1978) graduated in Medicine at the Medical University Lübeck (Germany) in 2003 and registered as a specialist Internal Medicine-Geriatrician at the Leiden University Medical Centre (the Netherlands) in 2009. Her research is driven by her passion to unravel ageing mechanisms and the interaction of ageing and age-related diseases, with a particular focus on sarcopenia. In 2013, she was appointed as full Professor of Gerontology at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (the Netherlands). Since February 2016 she is Divisional Director of Medicine and Community Care at the Royal Melbourne Hospital and Professor of Medicine and Aged Care at the University of Melbourne (Australia). During the last ten years, she conducted multiple national and European observational studies as well as clinical trials and published more than 190 peer-reviewed articles in international journals. Her innovative, multidisciplinary @Age research team works in the Netherlands (@AgeAmsterdam) and in Australia (@AgeMelbourne). She is an invited member of several international research and health policy committees to eventually increase the visibility, quantity and quality of ageing research.
