Prof. Dr. Adam Antebi is a Director of MPI for Biology of Ageing. Prof. Adam Antebi and his research team focus on the effects of the endocrine system and metabolism on development and lifespan. Using the nematode C. elegans as a model organism, they unravel the molecular mechanisms of how dietary restriction extends health and life span. They also investigate how hormonal signals from the reproductive system alter animal development and longevity. Finally, they explore how metabolism and quality control mechanisms impact maintenance of cellular organelles and organismal survival. They examine the influence of steroids, insulins and micro-RNAs on animal longevity from a molecular perspective. Additionally, they explore how the activation of the hexosamine pathway and other metabolic pathways stimulate protein quality control, which protects cells within the organism from age-related proteotoxicity and neurodegeneration.
