MRC Unit for Lifelong Health and Ageing

The MRC Unit for Lifelong Health and Ageing at UCL (MRC LHA at UCL) is home of the National Survey of Health and Development (NHSD) and other population-based studies. The Unit’s mission is to identify social and biological factors that affect lifelong health, ageing and the development of chronic disease risk by:

  • using and enhancing the NSHD and other population-based studies
  • exchanging knowledge gained with policymakers, health practitioners and other research users
  • promoting public understanding of healthy ageing.
