Location: please contact for the joining details

A reminder about the CEDAR Seminar on Wednesday 18th May 2022 (11am-12pm). We will be joined by Professor Mary McCarron from Trinity College Dublin, who will be speaking about “The Irish Longitudinal Study on Ageing (TILDA) intellectual disability supplement”. If you are interested in attending this seminar, please contact for the joining details.

 Professor Mary McCarron, PhD RNID, RGN, BNS. F.T.C.D is Dean of the Faculty of Health Sciences, and Chair of Ageing and Intellectual Disability at Trinity College Dublin. Professor McCarron is a committed ageing research leader at Trinity College and an international expert in the fields of intellectual disability, ageing, dementia, and palliative care. She has been a key advisor of ageing and policy issues to various governmental and other groups at a National and International level.


Professor McCarron is the founder and Principal Investigator for the first ever Longitudinal Comparative Study on Ageing in Persons with Intellectual Disability (IDS-TILDA) to be conducted in Ireland or internationally. This study is a supplement to The Irish Longitudinal Study on Ageing (TILDA). With its nationally representative sample, huge support from people with ID, their families and providers, and opportunities for comparisons with the general population, IDS-TILDA increases understanding how lives and chronic conditions change over time and provides insights on key issues at end of life. Professor McCarron's innovative and inclusive approaches are internationally recognized as an exemplar for ensuring meaningful involvement of persons with disability in the research process. The emerging IDS-TILDA data is already informing needed policy responses to develop human and appropriate services for this increasingly at risk group.
