Jane Fleming

Dr Jane Fleming moved into research from a clinical background in nursing, mainly with older people, through epidemiology training and a PhD on falls and their consequences in older old age. She has since co-ordinated the Cambridge City over-75s Cohort Study, the longest-running of several population-based studies of ageing run from the Public Health, Ageing and the Brain research group at the Cambridge Institute of Public Health. Using mixed methods approaches to inform policy and practice affecting older people, her programme of work has a focus on the growing numbers of the “older old” and those with dementia.
