Ageing is a fundamental contributor to a variety of human pathologies, such as frailty, cancer, and many neurodegenerative diseases including Alzheimer’s disease. The global elderly population is projected to substantially increase in this century; by the year 2100, 25% of the world population will be over 65 years old. This represents an international concern because of the severe socioeconomic and healthcare challenges associated with ageing. The Evandro Fang Lab is located in the Faculty of Medicine, University of Oslo and its affiliated Akershus University Hospital. We are fascinated with exploring the basic molecular mechanisms of human ageing and age-related diseases, with the final goal being the development of interventional strategies to improve people’s lifespan and healthspan.
