In a recent competition organised by the biotech company KNUDRA TRANSGENICS three members of the IHA were awarded prizes to make custom transgenic animals.
Second prize $3000 to Nuria Vergara to develop the project "Can human FOXO3a replace DAF-16 to promote longevity in C. elegans?" using CRSPR technology.
Third prize £1500 to Jennifer Tullet to investigate "How do translational errors affect longevity and health in C. elegans?"
Sixth prize $500 to Lamia Mestek to expand our knowledge in "Understanding the role of DAF-16 transcription factor in longevity"
The results of the competition can be checked in the following link: http://knudragrants.knudra.com/?page_id=39
Congratulations to all the winners!!!

The Wellcome Trust’s online publication, Mosaic, have released a new video ‘Until’, an exploration of ageing which asks the question, ‘how long would you like to live?’. The video includes interviews with leading ageing scientists (including the IHA's David Gems and Linda Partridge), transhumanists, elderly people and the young children and asks them when they think would be an appropriate time to die, if they had the choice. It also explores the possibilities and realities of extended lifespans in the future. The video can be found here: http://youtu.be/BsUZHyh4n-c More...
