Role of chromatin remodeling (epigenetic changes such as histone modification) in aging and stress resistance, using the nematode C. elegans as model organism. Also the genetics of induced stress resistance and life extension (hormesis), coupled with the study of stress-responsive biomarkers that predict life span and/or the rate of aging.
