Linda Partridge on How to Live Longer (BBC4)

28 April 2017

Professor Dame Linda Partridge

UCL Institute of Healthy Ageing director Professor Dame Linda Partridge was recently invited to appear on the BBC4 programme ’The Big Think – How to Live Longer’.

Professor Partridge’s work investigates the fundamental mechanisms of ageing as part of a growing field of research which considers ageing itself as a disease. Her ground-breaking research was thus included in Sir Paul Nurse’s investigation into what science can do to fix our bodies and extend our lives, and consider some of the ethical questions raised by the latest research techniques.

The programme is available to those in the UK on the BBC iPlayer.
