One day interdisciplinary conference to bring together current Cambridge research relevant to the processes and contexts of ageing.

About this Event

Public Health@Cambridge Network and Hughes Hall are delighted to invite you to a one day interdisciplinary conference, “Ageing: perspectives from cell to society”.

Date: Tuesday 25th February 2020

Time: 9:30 to 17:30

Location: Pavilion Room at Hughes Hall

The aim of the conference is to investigate how we can enhance individual well-being by safeguarding health, increasing resilience and promoting community and wider involvement by activities throughout the life course and, in so doing promote benefits for society as a whole.

The morning session will showcase current research at Cambridge and the application of ageing research in the context of real-world challenges. Delegates will hear from a range of key-note speakers including Professor Carol Brayne, Professor Nabeel Affara, Professor Andrew Flewitt, Professor Kay-Tee Khaw, Professor Peter Landshoff, Dr Pat Langdon, Dr Victoria Keevil, Alison Hall and Dr Louise Lafortune.

In the afternoon session we will have strategic discussions to aim to identify Cambridge’s potential to address pressing issues through research, capacity building, and increasing the profile and influence of our researchers.

The event will deliver three clear goals:

• Better understanding and appreciation of the breadth of work on ageing across the Cambridge ecosystem, enabling improved sharing of ideas and knowledge and the fostering of new relationships, collaborative activities and partnerships

• Highlighting the most pressing issues

• Reflecting on how researchers in Cambridge can have an impact by developing plans to support their wider world influence and engagement.

If you would like to present a poster at the conference, please email your abstract to hw523@medschl.cam.ac.uk. Max 200 words.

Places are free but limited; lunch will be provided.
