Description

The Ageing Research Group is a team of researchers who are interested in examining the way in which cognition, behaviour and emotion change as people get older. The group includes postgraduate students, research assistants, postdoctoral research fellows and lecturers.


Members of the Ageing Research Group have received funding from a variety of sources, including The British Academy, The Nuffield Foundation, The Alzheimer's Disease Society, the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council's EQUAL initiative (Extending Quality of Life in older and disabled people), the BBSRC, and FP7 Marie Curie, among others.


Our research has been helped greatly by the Older Adult Research Panel. This is a group of over 300 older adults (aged over 50 years) who have kindly volunteered to participate in our research studies.

Aims

To achieve a higher profile for research work undertaken by the University in fields relating to individual quality of life, ageing and disability.


Better positioning of the University, both within the UK and internationally, in relation to future opportunities for research in these fields.


Development of a stronger community of researchers in these fields and the consequent capacity to take advantage of the growing number of opportunities.


Securing significant research funds in these fields.


Involvement of older people, those with disabilities, and their intermediaries throughout the research process to ensure that research is based on need.


Successful hosting of a series of regional, national and international events.


Involvement and commitment of relevant schools, departments and others involved with the University to the field.


Contribute to the University's strategic objectives of the development of health related research, greater interdisciplinarity and multi-disciplinarity and strengthening activities which utilise the perspectives and skills of the social sciences.

Main research areas

Quality of life. Independence. Ageing and disability.


The School has an international reputation for research in a number of areas, including child development and psychopathology, with a flourishing neuroscience centre and a long-standing tradition of influencing clinical training and practice on the basis of empirical research.
