Lectureship for Alexandre Benedetto

Until recently an EU-funded postdoc in David Gems's lab, Alex Benedetto will shortly set up his own laboratory at the University of Lancaster, in the Department of Biomedical and Life Sciences. There he will continue his investigations of the biology of ageing in model organisms, particularly C. elegans. We wish Alex all the best in setting up his new lab! More...

Congratulations to Dr Jorge Ivan Castillo Quan on his Cell Reports paper

Congratulations to Dr Jorge Ivan Castillo Quan whose paper in Cell Reports was published today. His research, which was carried out during his PhD studies at the Institute of Healthy Ageing, demonstrates that fruit flies live 16% longer than average when given low doses of the mood stabiliser lithium.

Changing of the Guard in C. elegans lab

3 April 2012

24 January 2012

The IHA waves goodbye to Dan Ackerman, who has joined Celeste Simon's
group at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine in Pittburgh,
USA as a postdoc to work on HIF signaling and cancer. Also leaving the
lab is Sara Valentini. Both Sara and Dan obtained their Ph.D. at the IHA
(David Gems's lab). Also, Kathrin Schmeisser, a visiting Ph.D. student
from the University of Jena (Michael Ristow's lab) returned home after a
4 month research visit. This month Dr Alex Benedetto joined the lab to
work on the biology of sex differences in ageing in C. elegans. Alex
worked previously on the genetics of manganese transport and toxicity in
C. elegans with Prof. Michael Aschner at Vanderbilt University in Nashville.
