The range of research topics for our Ageing MPhil, PhD and MD programmes is diverse. They include: biology of ageing; age-related diseases; ageing health and society; technology; nutrition and oral health; and ethics.
Increased life expectancy is one of the most notable human achievements of the last century. We are living longer, and our quality of life depends on healthy ageing. Older people are at increased risk of disease and disability. This can seriously affect their quality of life and impact on their families. This is why Newcastle's research and treatment of our ageing population is important for us all.
