19 March 2013

Chemistry Auditorium, University College London

Friday March 22 at 6.30pm

IOP Institute of Physics present: Why is Life Deadlier for the Male?

Women usually outlive men. Dr Jennifer Regan will try to explain this in her lecture Immunity, Ageing and Gender – Why is Life Deadlier for the Male?

Dr Regan will explain how and why we study ageing. She will discuss the evolution of ageing and lifespan – particularly sex differences in lifespan and why they might have evolved. She will discuss the differences in immune responses in men and women and how they might contribute to greater female longevity.
