What does it meant to ‘live well’ in old age? This enormous question is a starting point for our latest inquiry which will explore ethical questions in relation to the role of science and technology in helping people live well in old age.

Dr Bella Starling, Director of Vocal at Manchester University NHS Foundation and a Wellcome Trust Engagement Fellow, is the Chair of the inquiry. We are in the process of appointing a working group.
