Why we're experts in ageing

As part of Newcastle University, The National Innovation Centre for Ageing (NICA) can draw on more than 20 years of ageing research.

The considerable breadth and depth of our ageing research is coordinated via Newcastle University Institute for Ageing.

This brings together over 700 researchers looking at:

  • how we age
  • how we can age better  - through exercise, good diet, better care and treatments for illnesses
  • the key global and social challenges of ageing  - use of technology, age-friendly environments and consumer products

We also have close links with other major ageing research centres nationally and internationally.

What our customers say

“The spirited response of Voice North members to the workshop materials and their ability to develop creative ideas of their own made this a very valuable exercise for me as an academic. The real world nature of the enquiry clearly contributed to Voice North member’s realisation that their contribution was highly valued.”

R C Gilroy, Professor of Ageing, Policy & Planning – Newcastle University
