Dr Nazif Alic paper published in PLOS Genetics

In their recent paper in PLOS Genetics Alic and co-workers explore the complex relationship between Drosophila foxo, a transcription factor with evolutionarily conserved role in ageing, and Anterior open, an ETS-family transcription factor that is a direct target of dFOXO in the adult gut and whose activation can extend lifespan.

The paper is entitled, "Interplay of dFOXO and Two ETS-Family Transcription Factors Determines Lifespan in Drosophila melanogaster"

Healthy Ageing exhibition news

26 September 2012

The IHA recently took part in the hugely successful Royal Society Summer Science Exhibition with a stand explaining current research on healthy ageing.  As a consequence of this, further invitations were received to participate in other events and the team has therefore already exhibited in Bangkok, Thailand at the invitation of The British Council and are due to take part shortly in the more local Bloomsbury Festival to be held on 20/21 October as well as a Science Exhibition in Brighton in the New Year. 

Congratulations to Dr Matt Piper and his team from the Partridge, Piper, Gems and also Bahler labs for an excellent piece of public engagement.
