Robert Slater first took an interest in ageing in 1968 when undertaking his M.Phil. research project on ways in which older people adjust to life in residential Homes. Subsequently, he became a founding member of the British Society of Gerontology and conducted further research on life in residential homes, as well as on tinnitus (more common in older people) and on the handicapping aspects of the physical environment in Wales (experienced by many older people with physical disabilities). He has twice been an Open University course team member, first in 1978-9 helping to produce the course An Ageing Population and second in 1991-93, helping to produce the course An Ageing Society. He is co-editor ofthe book Ageing and Later Life, published in 1993.
