    Research Summary:
    Aging can be described as the steady decline in overall function, and increase in incidence of age-related diseases, over an organism’s lifetime. Remarkably, this process can be radically delayed through the reduction of dietary intake without maln... Read more

    Research Summary:
    We tend to think of each gene occurring once in the human genome sequence, but this is not exactly true as a large proportion of the human genome is composed of repeated sequences. Genes within repeated regions will occur more than once in the genome... Read more

    Research Summary:
    We study the molecular mechanisms which regulate Rac, an important protein that controls cell shape, cell movement, gene expression and oxygen radical formation. In particular, we study the proteins which activate Rac, so-called Rac-GEFs. Rac can be ... Read more
