Molecular Genetics of Ageing

Ageing is defined as a gradual decline of organismal homeostasis and of physiologic functions throughout the body, and is associated with an increased risk of age-related disease. The Antebi Lab studies the regulatory mechanisms that govern these processes using the nematode worm C. elegans, the African turquoise killifish Nothobranchius furzeri and human cells. Our work brings together traditional genetic approaches with systems biology (transcriptomics, proteomics, interactomics and imaging) and state-of-the-art metabolomic and lipidomic profiling of ageing-related processes.| more |
