Healthy ageing across the life course (HALCyon) is an interdisciplinary research collaboration that harnesses the power of nine UK cohort studies to discover life course influences on physical and cognitive capability, social and psychological well-being, and underlying biology. In this symposium, HALCyon co-investigators reported the first wave of findings from five of the eight work packages.
