Course content

The range of research topics for our Ageing MPhil, PhD and MD programmes is diverse. They include: biology of ageing; age-related diseases; ageing health and society; technology; nutrition and oral health; and ethics.

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:

Biological mechanisms of ageing

Intrinsic cellular and molecular mechanisms and biomarkers of the ageing process.

Clinical studies of age-related diseases

Experimental medicine and translation of basic science for patient benefits.

Ageing health and society

The social dimensions of population ageing, and health care policy and provision.

Technology for an ageing population

Research and development of innovative assistive technologies to support independence and quality of life.

Nutrition and oral health

The role of nutritional factors in healthy ageing and the impacts of oral health.

Ethics, philosophy and engagement

Ethics and principles underlying attempts to improve the quality of later life. This includes working with older people and their representative organisations.

Pharmacy

Our new School of Pharmacy has scientists and clinicians working together on all aspects of pharmaceutical sciences and clinical pharmacy.
