The End of Ageing

If some animals can regenerate, will we be able to do so in the future?

Professor Nadia Rosenthal's commitment to understanding muscle is leading her towards breakthroughs in preventing and treating heart attacks, and discoveries made in mice are being used to translate to strategies for human therapy much more quickly than ever before. In this talk Nadia will extend her thinking about stem cells in regeneration to include how stem cells may play a role in reversing the process of ageing and perhaps even extending life span.

With her research team, she has found that insulin-like growth factor (IGF-1) can slow or even reverse muscle loss in mouse models of degenerative diseases such as Duchenne muscular dystrophy.
