Congratulations to Jennifer Tullet

Warmest congratulations to Dr Jennifer Tullet (Gems lab) whose paper “DAF-16/FoxO directly regulates an atypical AMP-activated protein kinase gamma isoform to mediate the effects of insulin/IGF-1 signaling on aging in C. elegans” was recently accepted for publication by the journal PLoS Genetics. Jennifer also presented this work at the British Society for Research on Ageing annual conference and received the Koncharevsky Award for best talk by an up and coming scientist. This award will allow her to attend and speak at the American Aging Association meeting in San Antonio, Texas in 2014. Furthermore, she was one of five people from UCL recently selected for the Aurora programme for women in leadership positions in Higher Education!

Departures from the Gems lab

Farewell from the Gems lab to Dr Michèle Riesen, who recently moved to a new job at Oxford University, and to Inna Feyst, who returned to Potsdam University, after an 8 month research stint in the Gems lab.

Congratulations to Filipe Cabreiro!

Warmest congratulations also to Dr Filipe Cabreiro who was recently awarded a Sir Henry Dale Fellowship from the Royal Society and the Wellcome Trust, initially for 5 years. Filipe recently established his lab at the UCL Department of Structural and Molecular Biology, working on aging in C. elegans, and remains affiliated with the Institute of Healthy Ageing.

Growing popularity of Biology of Ageing course

This year more students than ever took the popular 20 lecture module Biology of Ageing, run by staff from the Institute of Healthy Ageing. This year 105 students final year undergraduates and masters students took the course, compared to 35 in 2005 when the course was first run.
