Gems Lab News Winter Roundup

11 March 2013

Congratulations to Dr. Cassandra Coburn, who was awarded her Ph.D. in December for her thesis entitled “The biology of death in Caenorhabditis elegans”. See Cassie talk about her research here. New members of the lab: Rosina Prior joined the lab in the Autumn as an M.Res. student and, following in Cassie’s footsteps, is investigating the biology of rigor mortis in C. elegans. In April Dr Marina Ezcurra will join the lab. Marina did her Ph.D. with Bill Schafer at the MRC-Laboratory of Molecular Biology in Cambridge. David Gems is continuing to focus on application of Misha Blagosklonny’s hyperfunction theory of ageing to C. elegans. He recently wrote a review with Linda Partridge on the recent, profound conceptual changes in the ageing field [Genetics of longevity in model organisms: debates and paradigm shifts. Gems D, Partridge L. Annu Rev Physiol. 2013 75: 621-644], and this month presented this work to scientists at Newcastle University’s Institute of Ageing and Health, where he discussed the relative merits of the disposable soma and bloated soma theories with Dr Daryl Shanley and Prof Thomas von Zglinicki, among others.
