Last night at Dots won't leave anyone disappointed, as we approach human life from two very different sides.
On the one hand, Adi will answer all our questions about a very dreadful disease and its biological implications. On the other, Sarah discusses a very atypical anti-aging trick... Unfortunately only effective on some of our cells!

The A-B-Cancer

Adi Mackay (PhD student)
Cancer- the Voldemort of diseases, named by some “the disease”, and not for nothing as most of us know someone who fights or fought cancer. But do we understand what it is really about? How does cancer develop and why each patient is unique? In this talk we will go through the basics of the biology behind cancer, answer commonly asked questions, explain why cancer is so hard to treat and outline the challenges in finding new therapies.

Can having more children delay menopause?

Sarah Mae Penir (PhD student)
The ovary ages faster than most other organs in the body. As more and more women delay having children in the 21st century, understanding why this happens is very important. We’ve been digging into the biology of ovarian aging using a fancy technology called single-cell RNA sequencing. We found that different cells in the ovary age at different speeds. But here’s the exciting part—having more children seems to slow down some aging processes in the ovary, like oxidative stress and changes in hormone levels.
