Abstract: The pan-European "Genetics of Healthy Aging" (GEHA) consortium is undertaking a large study of long-lived individuals, which officially began on 22 May 2004. The consortium aims to identify genes that promote longevity and good health during the process of aging. The project will involve scientists working in multiple disciplines and using a variety of techniques.
