International Symposium 12./13. Nov 2019
Reduced food intake in old mice can no longer improve health
The short life cycle makes the Killifish extremely interesting for aging research.
Two Postdocs from CECAD groups, Matthias Rübsam (Niessen lab) and Gisela Slaats (Nephrolab), were selected to receive a full and a partial Senior...
Cold temperature delays the aging of the germline and extends fertility of C. elegans. The germline promotes the fitness of other tissues to induce...
A mutation in mitochondrial gene doubles the lifespan in the worm C. elegans by turning on a detox pathway, researchers of the Cluster of Excellence...
Molecular mechanics in the skin of mice are driven by polarity genes as a team led by Sandra Iden of the Cluster of Excellence CECAD reports in...
Since more than hundred years heritance of the genetic information was thought to be autonomously controlled by the germ cells. Therefore, acquired...
The evolution of short lifespan in African killifish is explained by the lack of strong selection against deleterious mutations
