Ageing Research

Fundamental ageing research used to be a slow, unexciting, area of academia, with all the big names and money looking at specific diseases. But now that people have realised that most age-related diseases have a shared cause (aging, who'd have thought it?) it's becoming big business. Private money is being invested in biotech start-ups, which is great, but there is still plenty of basic (and by that I don't mean simple) research to do to increase our understanding of the very complex products and processes of ageing.

Sometimes I prefer to call this "anti-ageing research" - because nobody is researching how to speed it up!

A note on spelling - Ageing or Aging?

According to Cambridge Dictionary: UK = ageing, US = aging

Being a UK-based club, the preference is to spell it with an "e" - but as most publications use the US version (and it's quicker to type!), realistically, it is used interchangeably throughout the site.
