Purpose

To provide infrastructure support for advancing the development of interdisciplinary areas of biological, behavioural and social research of relevance to ageing.

Key aims

  1. Epigenetics: Advance research from a life course perspective that elucidates how epigenetic processes translate the effects of social environments into behavioural or behaviourally mediated outcomes that may persist throughout life into middle and late adulthood. This builds on the ESRC/BBSRC International Symposium on Epigenetics (see external links)
  2. Reversibility: Assessing the prospects for mid-late life reversibility of phenotypes associated with early life adversity and subsequent later life health and socioeconomic disparities. See the NIA website for further information (see external links)
