Students will have a comprehensive understanding of molecular mechanisms and genetic pathways controlling the cellular ageing, as well as research approaches to study and manipulate this process. They will be equipped to critically assess the research in the field and to formulate and express their own opinion on the subject. They will have discussed the ongoing genetic research on ageing within the school.Indicative Module Content:
- Intro, Relevance of Ageing Research and Life-extending strategies
- Plasticity of Ageing
- Theories of Ageing (Programmed and Damage-Based), including DevAge, free radical, mitochondrial, DNA damage/telomeric, stem cell/senescence, protein damage/autophagy, immuageing.
- GWAS on ageing
- Hot topics in ageing research
