Bioethics briefing note: The search for a treatment for ageing

The search for a treatment for ageing  briefing note explores the latest scientific developments in the burgeoning field of ageing research, and identifies the key ethical and social issues raised.

This is a different type of output from the Nuffield Council on Bioethics. It’s the first in a series of briefing notes on new scientific and medical developments and the ethical and social issues raised. We are planning further briefing notes on whole genome sequencing of newborn babies, and the use of artificial intelligence in healthcare.

The Council is currently working on two in-depth inquiries on genome editing and the ethics of research in global health emergencies. These projects will result in detailed reports with policy recommendations.
