Training scientists to repair aged tissue
Short of searching for the fountain of youth, scientists are increasingly investigating the underlying biology of aging in the hopes of boosting health and longevity. There is growing interest in the development of drugs to treat the aging process. This is the aim of the EU-funded ARDRE project. It will set up a PhD training network for early career scientists to explore evolutionarily conserved mechanisms of ageing, regeneration and drug research. It will launch the doctoral programme to discover new molecules involved in or potentially counteracting ageing or regeneration, and to unravel molecular mechanisms of ageing and regeneration. The project will organise the recruitment of 12 early-stage researchers in two subsequent calls.
