Title: Corticosterone, Telomeres and Life Histories

Location:
Seminar room, bldg. 4
Eberhard-Gwinner-Straße
82319 Seewiesen

Host: Michaela Hau
Host Email: mhau@orn.mpg.de
Abstract:
Telomere length is a predictor of life span in humans and other species, raising the question how variation in telomere length arises. Because telomere length declines with age, telomere length at any time point is the outcome of telomere length at birth and subsequent telomere dynamics. I will discuss recent findings on both factors, with special attention to the role of corticosterone.
