Hughes Hall and Public Health@Cambridge Network are running a one-day interdisciplinary conference to bring together current Cambridge research relevant to the processes and contexts of ageing.
Tuesday 25th February 2020, 9:30 to 17:30, in the Pavilion Room at Hughes Hall, Cambridge, CB1 2EW.

A draft programme is here: Ageing Conference Programme DRAFT

Delegates will hear from a range of key-note speakers including Professor Carol Brayne, Professor Nabeel Affara, Professor Andrew Flewitt, Professor Kay-Tee Khaw, Professor Peter Landshoff, Dr Victoria Keevil, Alison Hall and Dr Louise Lafortune.

We run a range of Bridge events and opportunities. Many of these support our Impact Leadership Programme which is designed to equip our academic community for life beyond the College gates and to help maximise their impact and employability, and enhance their CV, whilst studying at Hughes.
We do this by providing training and development opportunities to the most relevant candidates who apply to our programme and by offering a range of events and experiences to the whole Hughes Hall community. We also provide advice on career development, research translation, and partnership brokering, and act as an initial point of contact for those navigating the Cambridge translation ecosystem or looking to connect externally, including policy, practice and industry collaboration.
Our lectures, events, seminars and other opportunities include:
