Talks from Gems Lab at International C. elegans Meeting

Dr Marina Ezcurra and Dr Alex Benedetto were both selected to speak at the recent International C. elegans Meeting in Los Angeles (June 24th-28th). The two talks described new breakthroughs in understanding the mechanisms by which age-related pathologies originate in C. elegans, and generated considerable interest. Alex also described a new stress-resistance assay based on death fluorescence, recently discovered in the Gems lab.

'How Ageing Evolves'

22 February 2012

Dr David Gems participated in the Darwin's Birthday debate held at the
Natural History Museum, along with Dr Daryl Shanley (University of
Newcastle). The topic of the debate was "Reconciling mechanistic and
evolutionary theories of ageing." David Gems argued for the bloated soma
theory, an alternative to the disposable soma theory of ageing; Daryl
Shanley defended the disposable soma theory. The event, introduced by
Prof Adrian Lister (NHM) and chaired by Dr Max Reuter (UCL) was well
attended and there were many questions and comments from the audience.
