Our Goals

Ageing research at the University of Glasgow is varied and cutting edge; scientists from a wide range of disciplines use state-of-the-art approaches to understand the causes and consequences of ageing. The Glasgow Ageing Research Network brings these diverse approaches together with a group of researchers committed to pursuing inter-disciplinary approaches to ageing research. Combining our strengths in clinical research, ecology and evolutionary biology, molecular and cellular biology, chemistry, engineering, psychology and social science, the Glasgow Ageing Research Network explores all the facets of ageing, from the mechanisms underlying it to how ageing impacts on the lives of people and animals.
