Research efforts to help the world's ageing population live longer healthier lives have been given a major boost with the announcement of six new transatlantic research projects aiming to understanding the biology of the ageing process.

In the first agreement of its kind, the US funding agency for ageing research, the National Institute on Aging (NIA) and the UK's funding body for bioscience research, the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) are jointly funding £4M of projects. Each project includes leading researchers from universities from both the UK and US.
