3 November, 2016 - UCL Ageing Event – cultivating research connections across the University

Time: 13:30:00 - 18:00:00

This is a half-day event aimed primarily at UCL staff from postdoctoral research associates to senior lecturers who work on ageing research in a wide variety of disciplines, including epidemiology, bioscience, neuroscience, engineering, economics and infection and immunity. UCL has significant strength in ageing research, however, key researchers at UCL that work on ageing are unfamiliar with other scientists who work in different age-related disciplines. This is a missed opportunity, especially given the increased focus on lifelong health and wellbeing in the Government’s current priorities for research funding. The purpose of this meeting is therefore to enable more junior UCL researchers working on all aspects of ageing to network and to encourage new collaborations.
