World leading research on ageing at Newcastle University's Institute for Ageing was recognised by the Queen as part of her 90th birthday celebrations. A new Regius Professorship was created, one of twelve in the country, which recognises exceptionally high quality research.

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.

"The twelve institutions can consider themselves truly deserving of this great honour.”
