Worms hold clue to link between cancer and ageing in humans

r. We are now concentrating on trying to identify additional tumour suppressor genes that impact on ageing in worms and human cells. We think there are many more checkpoint proteins some of which may help to develop therapies for cancer and age associated diseases."

Professor Julia Goodfellow, Chief Executive of BBSRC, which funded the initial stages of the research, said: "Ageing and cancer are global concerns and it is exciting to see the success of international collaborations such as this. It is only by understanding fundamental bioscience like this that we can develop and deliver health benefits to the public in the future."
