Ageing Healthily - a public lunchtime lecture on the Biology of Ageing

Fri 10 Feb 2017, 1-2pm, Byre Theatre

In celebration of the UN's International Day of Women and Girls in Science, we welcome Professor Dame Linda Partridge to give a lecture on her research into the biology of ageing. Professor Partridge is the Director of the UCL Institute of Healthy Ageing and co-founder of the Max Planck Institute for Biology of Ageing. Her research is directed to understanding both how the rate of ageing evolves in nature and the mechanisms by which healthy lifespan can be extended in laboratory model organisms. This talk will discuss recent discoveries of treatments that ameliorate the ageing process.  The event, to be introduced by the University principal, Sally Mapstone, highlights the work of an eminent biologist and celebrates some of the outstanding science being done by women.
