Professor Louise Robinson, Director of the Newcastle University Institute for Ageing, said: “I am delighted that we are able to join in the celebrations for Her Majesty’s 90th birthday with this award of a Regius Professorship in Ageing to Newcastle University.
“It celebrates the increasingly important role of research into how we can help people age healthily and the breadth and depth of ageing-related research led by Newcastle University Institute for Ageing.”
John Penrose, the Minister for Constitution, said: “It is a privilege and an honour to announce these new Regius Professorships in recognition of the truly outstanding work of our universities and as a fitting tribute to mark Her Majesty’s 90th birthday.
