STAREE is a world first randomised controlled trial, conducted by Universities across Australia, studying the effects of statins on healthy ageing.

The STAREE study is proudly funded by public health research grants. To reduce influence and bias, we do not accept funding from pharmaceutical companies. STAREE findings may directly benefit current and future generations of Australians.
