Current Worm Research Projects
Health Span and Life Span - Examination of the relationship between health span and functional aging versus life span.
Stress Resistance and Life Span - Examination of the relations between life span and stress resistance, using comparative studies of stress resistance versus longevity, stress reporter lines, and forward genetic screens for stress-resistant mutants.
Current Mouse Research Projects
Identification of genes influencing stress resistance in the Mouse.
Identification of disease resistant loci using transposon induced mutant stem cells.
