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.
