Until recently an EU-funded postdoc in David Gems's lab, Alex Benedetto will shortly set up his own laboratory at the University of Lancaster, in the Department of Biomedical and Life Sciences. There he will continue his investigations of the biology of ageing in model organisms, particularly C. elegans. We wish Alex all the best in setting up his new lab! More...

Congratulations to Dr Jorge Ivan Castillo Quan whose paper in Cell Reports was published today. His research, which was carried out during his PhD studies at the Institute of Healthy Ageing, demonstrates that fruit flies live 16% longer than average when given low doses of the mood stabiliser lithium.

Postdoctoral position: Transcriptional control of immunemetabolic choice in Drosophila
A three-year MRC-funded postdoctoral position is available in Marc Dionne’s laboratory in the Centre for Molecular and Cellular Biology of Inflammation (CMCBI) at King’s College London. This project follows from recent work exploring genetic and genomic mechanisms underlying the choice between immune and metabolic function in the Drosophila fat body (see Clark et al, Cell 155: 435 ). CMCBI is a centre of excellence in the basic biology of inflammation; the environment is highly interactive and the centre is home to groups working on inflammatory processes in flies, mice and humans. This project is a collaboration with Nazif Alic’s laboratory in the Institute of Healthy Ageing at University College London, affording further scientific input and collaborative scope. For further information, please contact Marc Dionne. This position will remain open until filled.
