Telomeres are structures at the ends of chromosomes and their length is a marker of biological ageing. In previous studies (see papers by Samani NJ and Codd V), we have shown a link between telomere length and risk of heart and other diseases. Building on this work we have been awarded a major grant by the MRC/BBSRC/BHF to measure the average telomere length of all 500,000 participants in UK Biobank (
