The online forum for the evolution of health & wellbeing
Over the past 50 years advances in medical science have resulted in an increase in life expectancy in many developed countries. Now the challenge is to ensure that this increased life expectancy is coupled with high quality wellbeing.
Over the past three years CRUCIBLE has brought together research groups from across UCL to meet this challenge by creating, supporting and delivering innovative research. The subsequent research has been truly interdisciplinary ensuring that problems associated with lifelong health and wellbeing are investigated in their totality. See details of the different projects, events and studentships funded by Crucible here (PDF - 573Kb). Crucible is also affiliated with the International Longevity Centre-UK..
