Influencing the trajectories of ageing

Academy of Medical Sciences, London

41 Portland Place,

The Academy's FORUM held a meeting on ageing on 16 September 2016. Participants explored the current 'state of play' of ageing research and how this science can be used for decision-making, including how the health and social care system can benefit from this research. Discussions focussed on the implications of advances in ageing research, including how the science can be used to understand trends in longevity and health; altering the trajectories of ageing and health; supporting health promoting environments; and opportunities for intervention and prevention in health and social care.

The meeting, co-chaired by Professor Tom Kirkwood CBE FMedSci and Sir John Pattison FMedSci, brought together participants from across the healthcare sector including academia, healthcare industry, NHS, public health, actuary, regulators and charities, amongst others.
