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"

Nazif Alic


Dr Nazif Alic is interested in how changes in transcription factor activity drive the plasticity of adult physiology and lifespan in the fruit fly.


PhD Studentship

A 4 year PhD Studentship is now available in my group. See here for details and to apply.


The new round of Marie Curie applications is open. If interested in obtaining a Marie Curie Fellowship to work on ageing and transcription in Drosophila, please contact Nazif Alic (n.alic@ucl.ac.uk).
