Workshop on ageing

Research on ageing is conducted within departments in all four of Oxford’s divisions. Research spans the cultural and societal consequences of an ageing population; therapeutics of age-related diseases; the population-level consequences of ageing in terms of city planning, education and economics; patterns of senescence across the tree of life; helping people live happily and healthily into old age; and much more.

We have arranged a workshop to bring together researchers on ageing from across the divisions. The aim of the workshop is to raise awareness of the diversity of ageing research across the university and to stimulate cross-disciplinary research agendas that could potentially underpin bids for government and industry funding in this area.

The workshop will consist of a brief introduction from Patrick Grant (pro-VC for research), short talks from researchers in each division, a panel discussion where panel members include Sarah Harper (Oxford Centre for Population Ageing), Chas Bountra (pro-VC for innovation) and Sunetra Gupta (MPLS) and a drinks reception.

The workshop will take place on February 13th starting at 2.00pm in the lecture theatre of the Oxford Martin School. If you wish to attend, please register as spaces are limited.
