Oxidative DNA Damage/Repair, the Circadian Clock and inflammaging in Sarcopenia and Inflammatory Lung Disease
My background is in studying DNA damage and recombination, specifically in relation to ageing, specifically sarcopenia. I currently have projects investigating potential therapeutic targets and regimes in the recently identified signalling pathway that links repair of oxidative DNA damage by OGG1 and NFkB induced inflammation in both the lung and skeletal muscle.
