In this PhD project the student will investigate Ribostasis and its regulation in the rapidly aging African Turquoise killifish, the shortest lived vertebrate. The project will apply cutting edge molecular and imaging tools such transcriptomics and high resolution imaging.Dysfunction or loss of regulation of Ribostasis is a key process driving aging and is a hallmark of many age related disorders and is a relatively underexplored area of research.
