    As Director of the Institute for Ageing and Health since 2004, Professor Kirkwood has developed the institute to become the largest on ageing in the UK and one of the foremost of its kind in the world. His research has been on the scientific basis of ageing and its relationship with age-related disability and disease, including the impact of social and behavioral factors. He has contributed extensively to shaping the public debate on ageing, through his 2001 BBC Reith Lectures and frequent contributions to television, radio, and print media. His books include the award-winning Time of Our Lives: The Science of Human Ageing, Chance, Development and Ageing (with Caleb Finch), The End of Age based on his Reith Lectures, and An Age of Wonders: the Story of the Newcastle 85+ Study (with Gordon Morris).
