About BSRA

History

The BSRA was formed as the “Club for Research on Ageing” by Professor Vladimir Korenchevsky (1880–1959) at some point prior to 1939 and as thus has a valid claim to be the world’s oldest scientific society devoted to research into the biology of ageing.

The society’s current chair is Professor Claire Stewart – see more information about the Board of Trustees.
