Congratulations to Dr Nazif Alic on the receipt of a £1.5m Responsive Mode grant from the BBSRC. He will work with collaborators Dr Jennifer Tullet (Kent University) and Prof Colin Selman (Glasgow University) to investigate the role of Pol III in ageing in worms, flies and mice. This research aims to elucidate the molecular mechanisms whereby partial inhibition of RNA polymerase III can extend lifespan in the fruit fly. The long-term aim of this work is to ensure human health and wellbeing throughout the life course.

Dr Alic is now recruiting for post-doc positions on this project, please see our Vacancies page for further details and to apply.
