Cafe Sci Cambridge: Ageing and Disease – what is the link?

Join us for this virtual Cafe Sci Cambridge


Tue 2nd Jun, 1:00 pm to 2:30 pm

Many diseases share a common risk factor: age. We already know that many genes and pathways are important in the ageing process and numerous studies demonstrate that genetic interventions can lead to healthier ageing. Join us for this fascinating talk, where we will discover the molecular changes that occur as we get older, and how researchers are working towards healthier human ageing.

Professor Dame Janet Thornton, Senior Scientist and Emeritus Director at EMBL’s European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI), is a leading researcher in structural bioinformatics. She has carried out pioneering research using computational approaches to better understand the three-dimensional structures of proteins. One part of her current research aims to use such computational approaches to identify drugs that may have an impact on human ageing.
