Aim and content
This course is free of charge for PhD students at Danish universities (except Copenhagen Business School), and for PhD students at graduate schools in the other Nordic countries. All other participants must pay the course fee.

Anyone can apply for the course, but if you are not a PhD student at a Danish university, you will be placed on the waiting list until enrollment deadline. This also applies to PhD students from Nordic countries. After the enrollment deadline, available seats will be allocated to applicants on the waiting list.

Learning objectives
A student who has met the objectives of the course will be able to:

1. Get insight into forefront aging research of different disciplines
2. Compare, relate and discuss perception of aging from different research disciplines
3. Reflect on limitations of mono-disciplinary understanding of aging mechanisms

Within the research fields, molecular biology, physiology, and social sciences, the process of aging is a very active research subject. Each of the research disciplines have their own unique view on aging, but also limitations to the extent that the phenomenon can be studied. With this course, the student will be introduced to the forefront research with these three research disciplines, and will through discussion, actively relate different aspects of age perception to get a deeper understanding of aging mechanisms.

The PhD course is intended for students from all academic fields, who are working or are planning to work with aging research - especially in a cross disciplinary context. However, the course is open for all students interested in the ability to relate to aging and understanding of other research disciplines.

Relevance to graduate programmes
The course is relevant to PhD students from the following graduate programmes at the Graduate School of Health and Medical Sciences, UCPH:

All graduate programmes

The course is taught in English.

The course will be based on lectures ending with discussions.
