Karolinska University Hospital, Solna BioClinicum J3:14 Kerstin Hagenfeldt.

The Shiels lab has a broad portfolio of Geroscience research interests, meeting at the cross-roads of age related health, the exposome and the underpinning biology of ageing. The lab investigates the interplay between the (epi)genome and both biotic and abiotic factors, such as socio-economic position, nutrition, lifestyle and the environment, all of which can influence individual trajectories of ageing and health.

Rescheduled from 9 March 14.00 to 10 March 15.00
