Ageing and Mitochondrial Genetics

Lead Research Organisation: Imperial College London
Department Name: Dept of Mathematics

Abstract

The acquisition of mitochondrial mutations possibly has a causal role in ageing but the role of stem cells, which also seem to age, is unclear. The student will develop new mathematical models to probe links between Stem Cell ageing and the ageing of muscle fibres. This will require a mix of statistical inference and mathematical biology. Progress in this research might lead to new therapies to address the diseases of later life. This work would be classified as applied probability/statistics or mathematical biology. This work will be joint with Cambridge Clinical Neuroscience and with GSK.
