João Pedro de Magalhães

Professor of Molecular Biogerontology at University of Birmingham Institute of Inflammation and Ageing, consultant, futurist, speaker

In 2008, I joined the University of Liverpool to establish my own group on genomic approaches to ageing. In 2022, I was recruited to the University of Birmingham as Chair of Molecular Biogerontology. We are world-leaders in employing genomics and bioinformatics to study ageing with pioneering work in studying gene networks of ageing and in sequencing and analyzing genomes from long-lived species.

In our research activities we have established numerous national and international collaborations, including collaborations with clinicians, biotech companies and non-profit organizations. Please browse this website for more information about our work and publications.
