The new biology of ageing

23 July 2009

Tuesday 20 October

Professor Dame Linda Partridge (UCL Genetics, Evolution and Environment)

Research into ageing has been rejuvenated by the discovery that genetic alterations extend the lifespan of laboratory animals. These mutations keep animals healthy for longer and protect them from many of the diseases of ageing. Professor Partridge will look at how this and other discoveries have led to a new wave of research directed at understanding how these changes can increase healthy lifespan in humans.
