Jean-Marie Robine, PhD, is a Research Director at the French National Institute of Health and Medical Research and head of the Health and Demography team at the Department of Biostatistics, University of Montpellier, France. Since its creation in 1989, Dr. Robine has been the coordinator of the International Network on Health Expectancy (REVES), which brings together over 150 researchers from more than 100 research institutes or universities in over 30 countries worldwide. He is the project leader of the European Health Expectancy Monitoring Unit (EHEMU), supported by the European Union. He is also responsible for the development of the International Database on Longevity (IDL) in association with the main research demographic centers. In the field of the genetic of longevity, Dr. Robine was one of the principal investigators of the European challenge for Healthy Ageing project (ECHA, Fifth European Research Framework, 2001-2004) and was one of the PI's for the Genetic of Healthy Ageing project (GEHA, Sixth European Research Framework, 2004-2009). Dr. Robine is also the chair of the Committee on Longevity and Health of the International Union for the Scientific Study of the Population (IUSSP) and co-chair of the Steering Committee of the World Ageing Survey (WAS), prepared by the International Association of Gerontology (IAG). ||Carol Jagger, PhD, is the AXA Professor of Epidemiology of Ageing in the Institute for Ageing and Health, Newcastle University. Her research spans demography and epidemiology with a focus on mental and physical functioning in ageing and determinants of healthy active life expectancy, particularly through cohort studies of ageing: the Melton Mowbray studies and currently the MRC Cognitive Function and Ageing Study and the MRC Newcastle 85 study. Within Europe she co-leads the European Health Expectancy Monitoring Unit and led the Healthy Ageing and Wellbeing theme of the FUTURAGE project which has created the roadmap for ageing research in Europe for the next 10-15 years. Carol is a Chartered Scientist and a Fellow of the Faculty of Public Health. |Eileen Crimmins, PhD, is the AARP Professor of Gerontology at the University of Southern California where she is currently the director of the USC/UCLA Center on Biodemography and Population Health, one of the Demography of Aging Centers supported by the U.S. National Institute on Aging. She is also the Director of a Multidisciplinary Training in Gerontology grant. Dr. Crimmins is a co-investigator of the NIA Sponsored Health and Retirement Survey in the U.S. Much of her research has focused on changes over time in health and mortality. Crimmins has been instrumental in organizing and promoting the recent integration of the measurement of biological indicators in large population surveys. She recently served as co-chair of a Committee for the National Academy of Sciences to address why life expectancy in the U.S. is falling so far behind that of other countries. She is a member of the Committee on Population at the National Research Council and has served on NAS panels of Race/Ethnic differences in Health, the Challenges of an Aging Society, and The Health of the American Population. She has co-edited several books with a focus on international aging, mortality and health expectancy: Determining Health Expectancies; Longer Life and Healthy Aging; Human Longevity, Individual Life Duration, and the Growth of the Oldest-old Population; the Handbook of Adult Mortality, Explaining Diverging Levels of Longevity in High-Income Countries, and International Differences in Mortality at Older Ages: Dimensions and Sources.
