Our (postponed) inaugural public lecture celebrating the United Nations International Day of Women and Girls in Science, entitled “Ageing Healthily”, was presented by Professor Dame Linda Partridge, on 10 November in the Byre Theatre. Researchers, students and members of the public alike were welcomed to this fascinating talk on the biology of ageing. Before the lecture, Professor Partridge met with early career researchers to discuss life in science, and a reception after the lecture provided an informal question and answer time. The lecture can be viewed below.
