Research Summary

Stem cells have been found in most tissues/organs. These stem cells usually produce replacements for lost and damaged cells, and it is not completely understood how this regenerative capacity becomes diminished during ageing.

Research projects:

  • Analysis of the role of stem cell-specific anti-toxicity mechanisms during ageing
  • Long-term tracking of the dynamics of age-based alterations in stem and progenitor cells
  • Analysis of the effect of calorific restriction on murine haematopoietic stem ageing.
  • Analysis of stem cell epigenetic alterations during ageing and how this alters gene expression
