Robert Dickson

Some people grow old yet show few signs of aging, while others show signs of aging long before they grow old. How can this be? We are trying to identify and understand the signal transduction pathways and cellular processes that control the rate of biological aging and lifespan. We use the common baker’s yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae as a model eukaryote because it has a short lifespan that can be analyzed by genetic and biochemical techniques.
