50 stories in 50 weeks

Happy 50th birthday from all of us at the 1970 British Cohort Study.

To thank you all for your ongoing participation, and to celebrate your contribution to science and society, we’ll be publishing 50 stories over 50 weeks on the BCS70 Facebook page and here on the BCS70 website.


Over the coming year we’ll be traversing five decades of British life, speaking to your fellow study members about their memories of taking part, showcasing the impact of BCS70’s research findings, and highlighting fascinating features of the survey design and study data.

In a podcast series, we’ll go behind the scenes to discover what it’s really like to work on a cohort study, and chat to leading academics to find out about their groundbreaking research using BCS70.

We’re also looking forward to unveiling brand new research findings from the Age 46 Sweep and telling you all more about the future of your study.
