4 year PhD studentship in the IHA available

The project will examine how genetically or pharmacologically induced changes to gene expression, at the level of transcriptional regulation, extend healthy lifespan in Drosophila melanogaster. To explore this question the student will use a broad range of techniques, including fly genetics and physiology, molecular biology, microscopy, protein chemistry and genomics. The student will gain a broad training in basic biogerontology that will prove relevant to a career in any of the currently relevant aspects of ageing and ageing related-disease. More...

"A baby born tonight will live on average five hours longer than a baby born last night. Why and how is life expectancy increasing so quickly? How much of this extended life will be in good health? What do we really understand about the mechanisms of ageing?"

Drs David Gems and Matt Piper will be speaking on this topic at the Cheltenham Science Festival on 15th June.  The festival is held annually as an open to the general public event where over 300 of the world's greatest thinkers, comedians, writers and scientists come together to celebrate and explore all things scientific.
