Description

The Institute is an interdisciplinary centre of excellence for research on the biology of ageing and ageing-related diseases. Our primary purpose is to bring together researchers working on the biology of ageing (biogerontology) with those working to understand the causes of ageing-related disease. 


By merging the two, we aim to develop a new translational biogerontology using the ageing process as a point of intervention to protect against the diseases of old age.


 

Aims

 Our primary purpose is to bring together researchers working on the basic biology of ageing (biogerontology) with those working to understand the causes of ageing-related disease. By merging the two, we aim to develop a new translational biogerontology using the ageing process as a point of intervention to protect against the diseases of old age. Our goal is to improve the health and quality of life for older people.


A secondary aim of the Institute is to nurture broader collaborations across UCL between researchers working on different aspects of ageing. We aim, through our combined activities, to transform healthcare technology and the social conditions of the elderly to create a future society in which the lives of older people are healthy, meaningful and happy.
