Increased life expectancy is one of the most notable human achievements of the last century. We are living longer, and our quality of life depends on healthy ageing. Older people are at increased risk of disease and disability. This can seriously affect their quality of life and impact on their families. This is why Newcastle's research and treatment of our ageing population is important for us all.
MPhil supervision is normally available in the following areas:
