Dr Labbadia’s group will investigate the relationship between changes in the activity of protein quality control pathways and susceptibility to age-associated disease using the nematode worm Caenorhabditis elegans as a model system. The ultimate goal of the work is to provide new insight into the causes of age-associated tissue decline and reveal new targets to promote healthy human ageing.
