Congratulations to Johnathan Labbadia on his new Cell Reports paper

9 November 2017

The IHA's Dr Johnathan Labbadia has just had a paper published in Cell Reports. Using the nematode worm Caenorhabditis elegans, Labbadia and colleagues demonstrate that low levels of mitochondrial stress caused by mutations or exposure to xenobiotics early in life, can suppress protein misfolding with age. This enhances stress resistance and delays ageing without detrimental effects on development or the number of offspring produced.
