Aging, reproduction and metabolism

Please note that the Aging, Reproduction and Development team is ceasing its activities over the course of 2017.

H_Aguilaniu_100x100.png Presentation of research topics developped by the team of Hugo Aguilaniu (in English).

Our team studies the molecular links between longevity (or aging) and other traits such as reproduction and/or metabolism, using C. elegans as our main model. The molecular nature of these links is still largely unclear and evolutionary theories have also failed to provide a satisfactory description of these fundamental connections.

 Our goal is therefore to provide a detailed description of the molecular networks that mediate these links.

 We feel that our approach will shed light on important questions about the biology of aging such as:

     - What is the cost of extended longevity?

     - To what extent does lifespan contribute to fitness?

We hope that our data will ultimately help to rationally design new strategies to treat age-related diseases such as cancer, neurodegeneration, metabolic syndromes and sarcopenia.
