Project Details


In this project we shall clarify the role of genes previously discovered to be associated with ageing in the process of successful (longevity without overt diseases) and unsuccessful ageing (pro-inflammatory status, age-related diseases, disabilities) by applying advanced functional genomics and proteomics, in collaboration with an SME.
