The ASPREE project produces and contributes to a number of publications for a range of audiences.

Biannual ASPREE newsletters are sent to ASPREE-XT study participants, providing an easy to read update on research progress, major developments, publications and findings.

Project updates geared towards the medical community are sent to GPs and practices with patients in the study.  Reseachers involved in the ASPREE project, or with an interest in the research, are updated on developments and outcomes by the Principal Investigators.


ASPREE holds informal presentations (study updates) for participants and GPs at various study site locations in south-eastern Australia. The presentation brings attendees and guests up to date on the progress of the research, accomplishments, new developments, such as new sub-studies, and explains published findings. These events provide an opportunity for participants to ask questions and share a cuppa afterwards (see photos below).

Research investigators frequently share study findings at professional conferences nationally and internationally, driving advancements in knowledge in health and ageing.

ASPREE project (including sub-study) findings are shared with scientists, physicians, doctors and researchers worldwide via publication in quality medical journals.

ASPREE investigators frequently contribute to specialist and broader media articles.
