Dr Nazif Alic paper published in PLOS Genetics

In their recent paper in PLOS Genetics Alic and co-workers explore the complex relationship between Drosophila foxo, a transcription factor with evolutionarily conserved role in ageing, and Anterior open, an ETS-family transcription factor that is a direct target of dFOXO in the adult gut and whose activation can extend lifespan.

The paper is entitled, "Interplay of dFOXO and Two ETS-Family Transcription Factors Determines Lifespan in Drosophila melanogaster"

Dr Jennifer Regan: Immunity, Ageing and Gender – Why is Life Deadlier for the Male? March 22nd

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.
