Public dialogue:

Public attitudes to ageing research

July 2006

Under the banner of RCUK, BBSRC commissioned Ipsos MORI SRI to help us gain insight into public attitudes to BBSRC- and MRC-funded ageing research.

This work was guided by a steering group and a report of the work was launched at an open meeting in July 2006.
