On Saturday, November 26 2016 BBC Radio 4 broadcast a 1 hr programme entitled "Logan's Run and Intergenerational War", presented by Ed Howker, with extensive contributions from IHA Co-Director Professor David Gems. The programme included in depth discussion of the impact of the ageing of populations, and the prospects for treatments for ageing to improve late-life health. Among other contributors to the programme were former Universities and Science minister David Willetts and the actress Jenny Agutter.
The programme is available for a short period via the BBC iPlayer at http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b083j672#play

Members of the IHA including Dr Nazif Alic and Dr Jenny Regan recently helped organise and participate in the highly successful UCL Ageing Event. This was the second Ageing Event and was targetted at post-doctoral researchers working in the ageing field across UCL. Emma Chambers, Research Associate in the Division of Infection and Immunity, has written a blog about the event.
