Tamir Chandra, PhD

Tamir Chandra, PhD holds a Chancellor’s fellowship at the University of Edinburgh and MRC Human Genetics Unit. He did his PhD at the University of Cambridge, where he started his work on changes in the cell nucleus upon cellular senescence. He continued his work on the role of epigenetics and the nucleus in cellular models of ageing and rejuvenation at the Babraham Institute and now in Edinburgh.

His vision is to impact the lives of people suffering from age-related disabilities and to increase the health-span in old age. He is trying to achieve this by understanding the underlying mechanisms of ageing, which will hopefully allow us to design interventions for epigenetic rejuvenation and slowing down the degenerative process associated with ageing.

“Tremendous progress has been made in the last year. Undoing Aging 2020 is the time and place to impress the wider community with carefully evaluated next steps and scientific rigour”, says Tamir Chandra.

Tamir was a speaker at the 2020 Undoing Aging Conference event.
