Lynne Cox

Molecular cell biologist studying the biology of ageing and age-related diseases.

Dr. Lynne Cox's research is on replicative senescence, which is the loss of ability of cells to copy their DNA, that underlies and is thought to cause human ageing. She studies progeroid Werner’s syndrome (WS), where cell senescence and early onset of many age-related symptoms in the patients result from loss of a single protein, the WRN helicase/exonuclease that is involved in DNA replication, recombination and repair.

On the board of trustees of the British Society for Research on Ageing.
