UCL Institute of Cardiovascular Science



Our vision is to lead on discoveries into life course determinants of physical and mental function in older age, as well as ways to maintain of independence in older age.


We will combine our rich biological, social and psychological data from across the life course, with molecular, genetic and imaging measures to help us achieve our vision.  Our aim is to inform the development of interventions to enhance resilience, maintain function and increase in health span.



We are using our cohorts to contribute to the knowledge about the virus effects on the immune system, as well as the impact it is having on the lives of the population.


The LHA promotes collaboration with researchers within the UK and abroad. Collaborations with external scientists are vital  for maximising the scientific potential of the cohorts.

If you would like to get involved, please contant the lead researcher for the theme of interest.
