David Gems – Fluorescence Makes Death Visible in Worms

Enjoy this interesting talk by Dr. David Gems, PhD, Reader in the Biology of aging at the University College London.

A major focus of current work in Dr. Gems’ laboratory is understanding the genes and biochemical processes by which reduced insulin/IGF-1 signalling and dietary restriction increase lifespan. Other interests include sex differences in the biology of aging, evolutionary conservation of mechanisms of aging, and bioethical implications of aging research.
