'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

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.
