Institute of Healthy Ageing (IHA)

The UCL Institute of Healthy Ageing is a world class centre of excellence for research on the biology of ageing and ageing-related diseases.

Researcher in a laboratory

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.
Our goal is to improve the health and quality of life for older people.
