We are always glad to hear from potential students, postdocs, collaborators, etc.  Our work on the biology and genetics of ageing combines traditional molecular biology and biochemistry methods, in particular using cell models including stem cells, with modern genomics and bioinformatics techniques.  Among other projects, our group studies how the genome regulates the process of ageing to try to understand how subtle genetic differences give rise to large differences in longevity, both between individuals and among species.  Methods available in our group also allow us the study the genetics of complex age-related diseases like cancer and neurodegenerative diseases.  We are also studying the naked mole-rat, a rodent that lives over 30 years and is extraordinary resistant to cancer, and the bowhead whale, the longest lived mammal (longevity > 200 years).  Choice of projects, however, is flexible and tailored to the interests of each individual. 

More information about our group and projects we are involved in is available online:


We are located in the Institute of Ageing and Chronic Disease part of the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences at the University of Liverpool.


In the long term, we would like our work to contribute to the development of interventions that preserve health and combat disease by manipulating the ageing process.
