MCB Joint Seminar: Jeremy Van Raamsdonk "Stress and aging: Role of pathways of cellular resilience in lifespan extension"

In this seminar, I will present research from my lab on the role of biological resilience in lifespan extension. Our work demonstrates a strong correlation between stress resistance and lifespan that results from similar genetic pathways contributing to both phenotypes. Moreover, our work suggests that the upregulation of pathways of cellular resilience contributes to lifespan extension in long-lived mutants. One of the pathways that I will focus on is the mitochondrial unfolded protein response.
