I am a 3rd year undergraduate pursuing an MBiol Biology degree at Merton College, University of Oxford. My main interests are in the molecular mechanisms underlying the ageing process, and especially how these can be manipulated to increase healthspan and lifespan. For my Master’s project, I intend to investigate the interactions between treatments that have previously been shown to extend lifespan.
