"Regulation of healthy aging"

What is the signature for healthy aging? I will discuss our work to define a molecular and genetic signature for healthy aging. Most recently, our work has focused on the effect of a high sugar diet on C. elegans.  My talk will outline our results dissecting the effect of a high sugar diet in the context of a whole organism examining alterations in diet, stress response, and aging.
