UK Ageing Network Newsletter Q2 2024

July 4, 2024

Following on from our previous post that shared our Q1 newsletter, we are delighted to now share the Q2 2024 issue of the UK Ageing Network Newsletter. If you are a member of UKAN or one of the networks, you should have received an email highlighting this issue, which was released on Friday 28 June 2024.

This issue includes even more features and article links, to spark conversation and hopefully inspire. Highlights include:

  • A Spotlight on… A published new perspective on the process of neurodegeneration
  • A Spotlight on… A BLAST Pump Priming Award Recipient: Renal ageing takes flight – can in vivo insect models inform clinical research?
  • A Spotlight on… The ATTAIN Network – a profile piece on two of the network leads
  • A Spotlight on… Funding your translational ageing research with VitaDAO
  • News – More of our regular Network News round-ups, plus updates from the Global Partnering Awards, a UKAN update on our work, and a special invite to participate in a brief poll from Club Vita on the future of ageing
  • Dates for your Calendar – This issue features a double page spread of events from both UKAN and the field of ageing research, for your perusal. It also has two pages of funding opportunities (with deadlines), including expressions of interest sought for a potential skills/training visit to the USA (for researchers) – we hope there’s something here for everyone
