Speaker information

Dr Matt Piper, UCL Institute of Healthy Ageing

It has been known for some time that moderate dietary restriction can extend healthy lifespan in a variety of organisms. By experimenting on fruitflies, we are uncovering that only very small changes in specific nutrients are required for this effect. Importantly, these effects appear to be evolutionarily conserved, meaning these new discoveries could be applied to benefit human ageing.
