Congratulations to Dr Adam Dobson on his paper in Cell Reports

Congratulatsions to Adam Dobson and Nazif Alic whose paper, "Nutritional Programming of Lifespan by FOXO Inhibition on Sugar-Rich Diets," has just been published in Cell Reports. Their study shows that a history of feeding on a high sugar-diet shortens lifespan and changes gene expression. These changes appear to be mediated by FoxO/Daf16 in both flies and worms More...

Welcome to Matías Fuentealba

The IHA extends a warm welcome to Matías Fuentealba who joins Linda Partridge’s group this week as a PhD student. Matias recently completed his Masters in Biological Sciences at the Universidad de Chile, where his work comprised a “study of the energetics and structural characteristics of NAD and NADP binding sites through statistical potentials.” Welcome to London Matías!

David Gems on BBC Radio 4 "Archive on 4"

On Saturday, November 26 2016 BBC Radio 4 broadcast a 1 hr programme entitled "Logan's Run and Intergenerational War", presented by Ed Howker, with extensive contributions from IHA Co-Director Professor David Gems. The programme included in depth discussion of the impact of the ageing of populations, and the prospects for treatments for ageing to improve late-life health. Among other contributors to the programme were former Universities and Science minister David Willetts and the actress Jenny Agutter.

The programme is available for a short period via the BBC iPlayer at http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b083j672#play
