SciBar Monday April 3rd - Drugs to combat ageing

Dr. Joao Pedro de Magalhaes, Institute of Ageing and Chronic Disease, University of Liverpool.

Hundreds of genes are now known to regulate ageing and have been shown to increase longevity by up to 10 fold in animal models. Drugs mimicking the longevity effects of these genes are now being developed. Studies of species with exceptional longevity (like bowhead whales) or disease resistance (like naked mole rats) may help to improve human health and prevent diseases.

This talk was first presented to Kirkby SciBar on 16th August, 2016 and the above information is courtesy their flyer.
