A new International Research Centre for Healthy Ageing and Longevity (IRCHAL) has been created in Australia with initial funding from a philanthropic family--that of John and Noah Weller. This center will be akin to the Center for Advanced Study at Stanford University where scientists and clinicians/geriatricians can spend extended time periods interacting and doing their research. The development of IRCHAL is an explicit effort to blend traditional scientific approaches to the study of aging with evidence-based natural and complementary medicine. At the heart of this new organization are annual international scientific conferences. The next meeting (third in the series) will be held in Melbourne, Australia, on 28 to 30 April 2006.
