Sari Stenholm appointed as a new Academy Research Fellow

The Academy of Finland’s Research Council for Health has decided to fund ten new research posts as Academy Research Fellow and one of them is Sari Stenholm acting professor of gerontology from University of Tampere.

The aim of the five-year funding for a research post as Academy Research Fellow is to provide an opportunity for the most talented and advanced researchers to develop their skills of academic leadership and to establish themselves as independent researchers.

Sari Stenholm aims to study how health behaviour and clinical risk factors change around the time of retirement by following ageing workers during their retirement transition. The study will also examine how life-long health behaviour is associated with extended working-life participation and what are the consequences of extended working life on physical and cognitive functioning in old age. Such information could be used at the individual and population level to promote health and functional capacity later in life.
