About the Project

Research into ageing is a growing and fascinating area of biology and medicine. It is increasingly recognised in academia, society and industry that many debilitating diseases and conditions share their origins in the process of ageing. My group studies many aspects of the ageing process using the fly (Drosophila melanogaster) as a model. The fly allows genetic manipulations that are highly precise and specific to our research it allows the collection of high-throughput high sample size lifespan data.

Our current main interests are: dietary restriction, nutritional geometry of life history, mTor signalling, genetics and regulation of lifespan and age-related disease. Feel free to contact me should you have any questions: . Webpage:
