My research interest is centered on the most prolific of all diseases: ageing. Why do organisms age? What does ageing mean at a cellular and molecular level? In particular, I am interested in the epigenetic changes that characterise ageing and how these changes can be used not only to study but also to halt or reverse aspects of ageing. My research is focused on understanding the dynamics of DNA methylation with age and how we can use these dynamics to predict biological age in the mouse. This readout of biological age in the mouse will aid the speed with which ageing can be studied in mammalian systems.
