Mutagenesis screens define unexpected roles of metabolism and protein synthesis in longevity

Max Planck Institute for Biology of Ageing, group leader for Metabolic and Genetic Regulation of Ageing

Understanding the metabolic and genetic regulation of ageing requires multiple parallel approaches. In his lecture, Dr. Denzel presents his lab’s investigations of the metabolic modulation of protein homeostasis, mechanisms that control protein synthesis, and the role of stress resistance in longevity.
