Skip to 0 minutes and 8 seconds Ageing would be something, or the main thing I would always try to pursue. It’s something that I can make many interesting projects out of. It also has a deep social concern and importance, so in that sense I think it will be a good investment. We should try to improve the quality of life at a later age, and if possible, of course, extending it. But I think the first aim should be to improve the quality of life. Why do we age? This enigma has puzzled mankind ever since it questioned its place in the universe. We’re all familiar with ageing, yet much of its underlying biological processes remain a rich area for exploration.
Skip to 0 minutes and 54 seconds My name is Marianna Bevova, and I’m a lead researcher at the European Research Institute for the Biology of Ageing at the University of Groningen. As a [INAUDIBLE] educator, I’d like to invite you to follow our free online course, The Molecular Mechanism of Ageing. This course will help you to understand the molecular changes that occur inside the human body during ageing. Ageing, though, is not unique to humans. That’s why we can make use of model systems to investigate those intricate mechanisms that drive ageing. Distinguished investigators from our institute will explain to you the experimental methods and model systems that are used to study ageing, and we’ll introduce you to the latest theories and concepts of ageing research.
Skip to 1 minute and 47 seconds During this intensive course you will watch lectures and interviews. You will study literature and participate in discussions. You will track your knowledge through tests, assignments, and quizzes. Please join us in this six week course through the fascinating world of the molecular mechanism of ageing. And who knows? It may even inspire you to join us with the research on ageing.
