New Wellcome Trust video 'Until' features IHA scientists

The Wellcome Trust’s online publication, Mosaic, have released a new video ‘Until’, an exploration of ageing which asks the question, ‘how long would you like to live?’. The video includes interviews with leading ageing scientists (including the IHA's David Gems and Linda Partridge), transhumanists, elderly people and the young children and asks them when they think would be an appropriate time to die, if they had the choice. It also explores the possibilities and realities of extended lifespans in the future. The video can be found here: http://youtu.be/BsUZHyh4n-c More...

Giovanna Vinti awarded UCL Green Impact Award

30 April 2013

We are delighted to announce that the 'Green-Darwin' Green Impact Team has won two Bronze Awards which were presented by the Provost at an Awards Ceremony held last week. The IHA's Giovanna Vinti secured the first award for 'Green-Darwin Labs' and the 'Green Darwin' team won a second.

These fantastic achievements form part of the efforts of the wider UCL community in pressing forward the green agenda. Awards went to teams across UCL for work that included putting up awareness-raising notices and posters encouraging people to switch off lights and equipment when not needed, potentially saving 7,038kg CO2 per year; and likewise to print and photocopy double-sided, potentially saving 108,594kg CO2 and £40,220 on resource costs this year across the institution.
