The NC3Rs and BBSRC are collaborating on a joint funding highlight notice to encourage the development of new and innovative models and approaches for ageing research, which reduce the current reliance on mammalian models, as well as address the gaps in terms of scientific utility and relevance to human ageing. Potential applicants are encouraged to attend a workshop on 01 September 2017 in central London. The workshop will include a series of short presentations on the current status of ageing research and the use of model systems. There will also be opportunities for networking and seeking potential new collaborators.
The event is free to attend but registration is essential. In the event of oversubscription, we will limit the number of attendees per organisation. The deadline for registration is 21 August 2017.
