For the first time, our lab attended the Nothobranchius symposium at the Max Planck Institute in Cologne (https://indico.age.mpg.de/event/19/). This killifish species is our new killifish model species just arrived in the lab for the PhD thesis of Antoine Wittorski and the master thesis of Jessica Ody. It is a new model of choice to study aging in vertebrates as it shows a very short life-span (about 10 weeks) with all the processes of aging. In our lab, we will investigate the epigenetic mechanisms and their links with the environment. This symposium put together scientists from all over the world, such as Stanford University, and Antoine and Jessica presented their project on a poster.
