Delineating the ageing proteome: convergence of ageing pathways in Caenorhabditis elegans


  • Dr Vikram Narayan

    University of Dundee

Project summary

Vikram will begin his research in Professor Cynthia Kenyon's laboratory at the University of California, San Francisco, where he will attempt to characterise changes in global protein dynamics occurring during the process of ageing in the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans. This work will be conducted in collaboration with Professor Angus Lamond and Dr Anton Gartner at the University of Dundee. Through his studies, he aims to identify ageing 'hub' proteins that can be manipulated to ensure healthy ageing by delaying the onset of age-associated illnesses such as cancer, neurodegenerative disease and cardiovascular disease.
