The University of Queensland currently undertakes research into ageing across most of its Faculties and Schools. To coordinate this university-wide effort, the Ageing Mind Initiative has established the 50+ Registry, a database of people over 50 years who are willing to participate in the University of Queensland's research projects in ageing.

If you would like to be added to this register, would like to change your existing details, or access the database as a researcher, please email and write "50 Plus Registry" in the subject heading.

Information for Interested participants

We welcome the very young (those 50-65 years of age), as well as those more senior to join this database. People on the 50+ Register are invited to be involved in projects that match their interests. Many projects involve meeting other people on the Registry. To express your interest in becoming involved please email

What you will receive:

Registrants will receive AMI newsletters via email four times a year. The newsletter will also contain details of the current research projects that registrants may be interested in participating in, and updates on ageing-related research. The newsletter may also include information on functions, activities and events that may be of interest to members in the community.

All of the information concerning AMI events and research projects for the community will be available online through this website. If you lose your copy of the newsletter, you can download an electronic copy through the AMI website.


Information for Researches

AMI supports individuals and teams dedicated to conducting research with ageing populations. However, the first priority of AMI is to maintain the safety and security of its valued participants and registrants. For this reason all contact to members of the registrants is done through AMI.
