The series will start off on the 18th of February with Dr Tine Buffel (University of Manchester), who will provide a critical review of some of the key questions and underlying assumptions that surround the participation of older people in research.
Due to the continuing pandemic, all the events this spring will be held online for participants, similarly to the previous term. Zoom links will be sent to registered participants and registration links can be found under each event description.
